We’ve been asked to choose our favourite poet, that’s such a tough task, and don’t I know it!   There’s so much talent in our poetry group, I’ve made many good friends here on soup I have a favorite poet, so when I see her name, I must read her latest, so it’s to her page I aim   We often post our poems at a similar time, I comment on hers, she comments on mine! Her rhyming poems flow, with great wit and emotion, I consider her poems to be pure poetry in motion    This poem is a tribute to poetess Ilene Bauer, I could sit read her witty poems for many an hour   If you’ve not read her work, you should go take a look, she’s a superb wordsmith and should publish a book!

Your tribute to Ilene is as lovely as it is sincere, Jan. She is talented and can write about any subject with no effort at all. She is down to earth, and I always look forward to her visits. Congratulations on yet another win! Hugs // paul

Hello Jan … Ilene's poems are typical about life that surrounds her, and yes they are all easy reading rhyming verse. A nice tribute indeed Jan - Lindsay

Thanks for dropping by:-) It is hard to choose a favourite poet as I have many friends on soup but putting friendship aside Ilene has been a favourite poet since I joined the site and so I chose her:-) hugs jan xx

Thanks for the tip,Jan. You can easily, with limited time, get into the habit of 'going for' the same names but I shall definitely be reading more of Ilene's after this tribute.

I have enjoyed Ilene's poetry for years now. She is SO good, Jan. You picked a great poet to pay tribute to. For me she is the Erma Bombeck of our POetrysoup group!!

Got to agree she is like Erma Bombeck who wrote with such humour, perhaps that is why I like Ilene's work so much. It was hard to choose a favourite poet but I have loved Ilene's work ever since I joined the site, her work is like a diary and I need to read her daily entry:-) hugs Jan xx

Hi Jan, This is a good poem and tribute. Did you see who she picked? I must say I haven't read her much. But I've seen of the comments she left on several poets poems, and they have always been good and supportive. I aim to visit her page more. I wish you the best of luck in the contest my friend. Have a super duper day:-) Alexis

I second the motion! Every day we get to read Ilene's thoughts on a matter which we may have overlooked and, of course, I always link that to your humour! You won't need luck for this contest! Aloha! Rico

hey jan! i am blown away by this very touching tribute (and so perfectly rhymed, too!). i just found out about this contest and your name also jumped to the front of my list (if i can return the favor in time). isn't it amazing how we can really feel like friends having never met and with all those miles between us? that's just - poetic!

You have always been top of my list I just adore your style with witty poems and tales of every day life, you do have such a gift Ilene and I know others would agree with me. If you ever publish your work I would dash to the shops to buy your book and believe me that is a rarity!:-) hugs jan xx

Oh I agree with all you have said about this lovely lady Jan. Her talent shines in rhyme and she can amaze writing about the most mundain subjects. That takes real talent! She is also great at capturing the heart with touching subjects. It is always a joy to read her work and yours too my friend. This is a beautiful tribute for a beautiful soul! I loved it!

She is an amazing poet I just love reading of every day things she has the knack of making something quite ordinary like doing the washing into something quite extraordinary and I adore reading about the fun she has with her grandchildren:-) hugs Jan xx

Good choice. Ilene is someone I always look forward to reading. Nicely done Jan. I would say good luck in the contest but I think everyone in this contest is a winner.
