A most charming poet named Dan Writes poems whenever he can He is sixty today So I’m writing to say Happy birthday from your friend Jan xxxxxxx An unfortunate poet named Daniel His huge ears made him look like a spaniel They dangled down so low Past his knees to his toe The plastic surgeon re-wrote the manual! The surgeon who was in charge He had never seen ears so large With a nip and a tuck Daniel was in good luck Dashing home to show his wife Marge POEMS POSTED WITH PERMISSION OF DANIEL TURNER 13th August 2016

You poem is heartfelt and witty..a great tribute to Daniel who I enjoy getting to know through his great poetry and insightful comments. You are an exceptional poet, a wonderful friend, a lovely soul Jan. Your versatility in writing, care and encouragement in inspiring others, your time in sharing your humour and heart, is a gift to all you give selflessly and generously. You epitomize the essence of "the beauty of a woman".I am blessed to be on this "poetry journey" with you..thank you :-)

Lynn you are too kind my friend:-) I have been on an amazing life journey since I started writing and I have learned so much from wonderful people here - without their encouragement I wouldn't have flourished as much as I have done:-) hugs Jan xx

Aww Thanks CayCay. I read Daniel's poem and saw it was his 60th birthday so I wrote the birthday poem and in a soup mail to him mentioned about rhyming Daniel and spaniel ... and the second poem was soon created lol:-) hugs Jan xx
