Just realized today that this is my 400th poem posted to the den, so this is my celebration of the occasion.


400th Anniversary


 


When they lay the ashes of what’s left of me


In a sealed crypt for all time


My words will live in someone’s heart


Perhaps with age they’ll season fine


 


A legacy of what was in my heart


Limited images of all I did and saw


Touched by the ones who knew me


Who even knew my sin and flaw


 


As a piper plays amazing grace


Loved ones wipe your tears away


I lived life well and lived life free


Said often in words what I had to say


 


Four hundred poems I count them all


As lessons shared to those who’ve read


My work like art images my soul


My children’s children hear what I have said.

Your encouragement is worn in newest luster though it be seasoned of old, looking forward to perusing your poetic progeny... an aphorism of alliterative alchemy contrived to convey my appreciation... simply said, I'm awed and a little daunted at the volume of your verse. Well, there is little left to do but wade in and hope it gets deep.

Holy Mackerals! You have 9 pages of poems! First time I've been to your page, so overwhelmed don't know where to begin. Looking for poems about the sea and your region (which I hear is beautiful and full of old ships and fisherman) 400 poem memorial says it all. You must be a master!

Congratulations, Fee!

I know I'm rather late, so by now, you must have twice as many of these beauties! What a great feat - and a treasure for your grands!
I heartily agree with that legacy!

God bless you with thousands more!

What a lovely accomplishment it is! A body of work to be proud of. I hear so many people say they wish they could write (or paint, draw, play music, dance, etc.) yet so many never even try. So, at 11:45pm, my time, on New Years Eve, I raise my glass to you, and to all of those who have the courage to follow their dreams and share their creative talents with the world. Cheers to you, Felix, now you have to write 400 more! And to everyone on AD, May 2007 be a wonderful year for all!

Beautiful! And a fine legacy it is, Felix. Isn't this why we write- not only to connect where we are but to hopefully live on in our words? A grand milestone, happy anniversary!

Wow Felix...You don't look a day over immortal. That's what all your poetry has accomplished...all your words are immortal now...that's a good thing.
Your great grand kids and their children can say "That's my gramp's poem". Doesn't that make you feel proud? It should.
BTW...you look fine, amused and confident. Good signs for a writer...poet!
You have my vote.
