The Ladies of Poetry Soup

I pay homage to a special group Our ladies here on Poetry Soup I shall start my list with mother Beer A Lady with whom I hold so dear Of Elaine George it’s clear to see She melts my heart with her poetry When it comes to Sharon what can I say I would humbly bow before her any day For my friend Rhoda it is clearly written With her as momma cat I wish I were a kitten Katherine with her darling Jenny so bright The two of them together are a sheer delight Michaela is off to Collage excited this year I’ve never met a soul that is so dear We have two Ladies fighting for their boys Mary and Christy both deserve all life’s joys Two more ladies that are really swell My friends Laura and the darling Adell Margaret is special, kind and really sweet The most spiritual lady I ever did meet We have a Mermaid off the Australian Coast To my dear friend Robyn I propose a toast Carol please know these words are true Never in this life could I forget you I guess I must be getting a little dreary I have yet to mention Karen O’Leary To Astrid, Bella, Farrah, Peggy and Rene’ I am blessed you have all passed my way Speaking of blessings these words are true Crystal proves we are blessed by what we do One special Lady just sets my heart aglow Tis my oldest daughter Sarah Jho The two I hold in my prayers and memory God watch over Tami Violet and Lynn Marie I must tell the truth for I shall tell no lies Added this cause I forgot Carrie and Heidie Buys And now I am feeling very low and blue Cause I went and forgot Patricia and Kristin to I didn't even have to think it over twice Before I jumped back and added D-nyce I didn’t realize when I started this endeavor That the list could just go on and on forever I must end this poem for it’s starting to hurt Wife just hit me for being a flirt (Just Kidding) I apologize to any Ladies that I have overlooked in this poem. Please know I hold you all in my heart, prayers and daily thought. I love you all. God Bless

A very delightful poem Mike. I thank you for the kind words but you and the girls have all my love. I hope the road is beginning to come to an end and I will be able to settle down and get a little more involved. Take care and Love you my special son, God Bless, Mom Beer

Quite a tribute to the ladies of PoetrySoup! Thanks for your comment on my poem. I think that the pollution has killed off most of the fireflies as I have been recently told, as they are certainly not to be seen in my area of Ontario or Saskatchewan. As a child, I used to collect them in jars, but haven't seen any since.

A great tribute to pay to the lovely ladies and geniuses of PoetrySoup. Your poem is gorgious. It creates the same effect like calling out, "Friends, Romans and Countrymen, Lend me your Ears". It says it all. It has made me jealous that being a male my name could not be included in this write. May be one day someone writes "The Men of PoetrySoup" and doesnot forget to include my name. Thanks for your kind remarks on my poem The Winds of Change. -Mohammad
