Poets convey a timeless message. They are often key witness to history's great political and social changes. Their writings inspire us to build lasting peace in our minds, to rethink relations between man and nature and to establish humanism...

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give You one of my sublime poems:

A nice cup of tea...
Me, myself, and I,
we often wonder why
nobody ever comes to see us

So, now we say -Bye-Bye!
Baby that's no lie,
we're leaving on the very next bus.

"Hey myself!", says me,
"it's nice to be free
from all this obligations!"

...A nice cup of tea,
on our way to Tennessee;
looking for new sensations...

Yesterday was the Great American Meatout. Today is World Poetry Day. It's nice to see positive signs amidst the missiles, tsunamis, recessions, nuclear accidents, oil spills.....

Right Bill, positive signs are hard to find these days! I'll keep on looking though...

How nice! I've been meaning to keep a New Year's Resolution to read a new poem every day (or at least every week). As with most resolutions, it's ended up taking a back burner, so this is a great reminder. Thanks!

It's sad to me that poetry has lost it's place in our world. Other then music one seldom hears or reads about poetry any more. Thanks Ben.

i wanted to send you a green star
since i can't give it to you because you're so far
but care2 doesn't allow me to do it again
so i will send it to you with the next week's train...
poetry is a medicine, a remedy for pain
a nice umbrella for heavy rain
a rhymed explanation and a hope sustain...
so do it again...
thanks ben!!!!!!!

Though 'tis too soon to send a green star to you, dear Ben
I shall thank you for your thoughtful post
With my own proverbially mighty pen

Let not this day alone be saved
For intimate thought and eloquent word
With which each highway and simple path of life should be

Paved
Savored
Spoken
Heard

Dandelion
by Evaleen Stein

Hey-a-day-a-day, my dear! Dandelion time!
Come, and let us make for them a pretty little rhyme!

See the meadows twinkling now, beautiful and bright
As the sky when through the blue shine the stars at night!

Once upon a time, folks say, mighty kings of old
Met upon a splendid field called "The Cloth of Gold."

But, we wonder, could it be there was ever seen
Brighter gold than glitters now in our meadows green?

Dandelions, dandelions, shining through the dew,
Let the kings have Cloth of Gold, but let us have you!

lol.....couldn't resist......Love N Peace, Dandelion

Noted. I used to write poetry, but I don`t remember where I packed it away at. So now I must go, but I want you to know, that I love you all so.

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"
You cannot currently send a star to Ben because you have done so within the last week.

Each shift you make in the sunlight somewhere
Cleaves you away unto dark. Now
You are clarion hair, bright brow,
Lightcaped shoulder and armside here,I and there
Gone into meadow shadow.Where
Are my eyes to run?
Shall I say you are fair
In the sun,
Or mermaid you in the grass waving away?
