I was ready to leave Poetry Soup early on, when one day I saw that Line had commented on every one of the 25 poems that I had posted.  Any progress I've made since then I really owe directly to her angelic assitance...

L   ooked to help this brand-new poet**
I    nterested in his every write
N   ever too busy to comment
E   ncouraged him by day and by night...

G   rew a veritable garden of friends
A   s she expanded her own horizons
U   plifting are the poems she's penned...
T   oday, this wonderful woman and wife's
H   usband is battling for his very life
I    t's incumbent upon us now to
E   ncourage, to support this classy lady:
R   each out with your love; it's the least we can do



** and so many others

Dear Gershon, what a most touching poem. It is so very true that I derive much pleasure & support from my new garden of friends as I celebrate my second year with PoetrySoup this month. Thank you for classifying my poems as uplifting, this is an awesome compliment. Your wishes for my husband are most appreciated. These are tough times but also most precious. Thank you so much for your very touching tribute. We all appreciate how active/generous you are with the # and quality of comments you post
