For Linda Poet Destroyer

Oh hearken to me Destroyer of Poets
With heart in hand I declare my feelings
Without pretentiousness humbly kneeling
Thou art the greatest and now I show it
In verse for all so they shall to know it
My desire for you I've been concealing
Conversations with you left me reeling
I'm amazed how you remain so stoic
So beautiful, so gracious, and funny
Promptly greeting then eating newcomers
Wittiness and charm forever ascends
You cast the longest shadow when sunny
And call out those duplicitous bummers
I'm glad we've decided to be good friends

     Italian Sonnet  rhyme scheme abba  abba  cde  cde
   an original poem by the "poemdog"  Daniel Turner
              For my friend Linda  "Poet Destroyer"

Daniel, you are awesome, wonderful and most important A LEO. :) I was 12 Back when I learned astrology, Leo's were my favorite people on the face of this earth. :) No wonder I was angry. LOL... Between you and I. :);):) You made my day with this poem. This is the best way to start out our new friendship. Haha, I eat newcomers for breakfast. A delight and a smile I offer each and everyone. Thank you for sharing this part of you. Always and forever ~LINDA~ aka Poet Destroyer

Thank you dear one for gracing the halls of my establishment. You crack me up. You're a sweet young lady with a big heart. I was only trying to get your attention. Now you know you are inside my heart and can't get out. Peace to you my friend.
