April is National Poetry Month

So, let's sit and have a wee cuppa tea...for all you Bard's and me!
Celebrate write...portraying your prose' might
Cooing a Ku, or willing your quill
Lasting of fill, every bite!

Keep on writing!
Love and Peace~

Steep’d, I beseech thee, enter
into the pome of a poem!
Compose your Ge or jeu d’esprit
Come! . . .mellowly prose
evermore disrobe
Thy poetical faculty

Pour’d, seasoning fro’ the cuppeth of you
Influentially a tome and astute
Marking thy name
Hath origins’,
O fame!
Read writings of yore to denude

Sips from esteemed language in muse
Spot to rise o’er and defuse
Dispersing in verse
that rest will unpurse
Whilst ye wet lips’ provenances
lauds ope to thy words

Savor my Poet!
Thy quills’ will, doeseth wells in me!
A Scribe’d in flavoring leaves
‘Tis readings of sorrows
Thro’ joyous repasts till morrows
May our forbearance for pens ne’er cease!

Drank this piece as if it were a steaming cup of Hot Chocolate...sipped it slowly, inhaling the fragrance, allowing the delicious taste of cocoa to linger between sips. In other words, Kimmy, you've penned a beautiful piece. :)

God Bless
Love and hugs

To write from the Heart
is always a start
but to make it rhyme
can sometimes take time.

I like your poem.
God Bless,

The last line says it all. Of course the other 23 lines were also pretty darn good. LOL

Very well put together write of the finest kind, methinks the chauser has his medieval Shakespearean influence taking tea with your muse in the royal bedchamber and providing us with this beauty from thine lips. Sweet...

Kimmy ...

You are a "one of a kind" word artist. I always enjoy your creations because they break the mold of what is, and what is not, accepted. True artists always take chances and press into unexplored territories. You do this with a "double dose" of panache.

Blessings to you friend ...

Light and Wisdom ...
