(That Such Brilliant Gems May A Lifetime Last)
Sponsor - Nina Parmenter
Giving my sincere thanks for this fine contest theme, that has so truly, deeply and greatly inpired me this bright and glorious new morn!
As ink into eager white paper soak
a voice from invisible realm commands
rest your old bones beneath this mighty oak
write as I, your brilliant muse demand
show this world, poet that has not forgot
that night stars are shining for a true cause
poetry oft heals soul's decaying rot
teach some to life's fast pace give needed pause.
