I'm reposting this for my dear, sweet DannyMac, your Mountain Poet, who's birthday is January 11. To me, he embodies all that a good and kind person is... and is a poet without equal, in my opinion! Happy Birthday, Mountain Poet, Daniel S. Mctaggart.
Licking snowflakes from your chin,
Ever thoughtful, inner smile.
I watch you from my window.
You're my world for just a while.
Can you see me dancing near you,
Twirling, silent, somewhere in my past?
My nose is pressed up to the glass,
Wanting all that's in my head to last.
You tilt your head, enough to see me there.
I see the tiny nod, that you don't mind
My reverie. You've brought me calm.
I turn to you for solace. To unwind.
love, katydid xox (he gave me this name.. smile)

|Wow. I don't know what to say. I is speechwess.
For all of y'all in the dark, Katydid has been my bestest friend since my arrival on the den. I don't think I could ask for a better partner in crime. Every time I post a poem, I'm always comforted somehow because I know she will read it. And a part of me writes these slice of life poems for her because I know she enjoys them.
Katydid, even though we've never met in person, I know we'll be friends forever. I know this because each of us has been changed by the other in some way. In my case, it's wanting to see how things stick on the ceiling whenever I cook. In your case, well, let's just say it will clear up in time.
As for the poem, I love it. There's only one problem: my tongue isn't long enough to lick snowflakes from my chin. And why are you staying inside? Come on out and build a snowman, hot darn it!

|Okay Katy and this is good and I wrote a poem for you called I could get into being a liberal because hey there are some lines in there that really apply. Robert asked me to do one for conservatives but remember it in the context it was rendered because history is doomed to repeat itself.|

|A wonderful poetic tribute to the Mountain Poet - who truly does write fabulous slice of life poems.
I second his Happy Birthday Wishes, and I hope he doesn't mind that several of us now like calling you Katydid, too.
