I've been away but nothing's changed,
maybe some names are rearranged?
But inhouse fighting, rage and war
(all of the things I loved Lit for).

The site's still real, it still survives
Einstinical opportunity still thrives.
For poets live on fun and wit
(I think I may hang round a bit).

The new pen names I'll get to know
(and better still if innards show).
I've learned to read between the lines
for that is where most poetry shines.

A few old names I still recall
and some I've met,but not quite all.
Some have died, but still survive,
(my god, how I enjoy the ride)!

I see that plaguary's still a game
and vetting comments's back again.
I love the way that we all trust
to share our love and hate and lust!

I'm back,that means I'll try to be
my former self, so lovely,
who never would upset the cart
when criticising poet's art.

No Lit's not changed, I've had a look
and sampled waters from your brook,
where all is calm and all help all,
again I hear the 'Siren's Call'.

But if I mention ghosts or God
please never ever spare the rod.
I know these things can cause upset
and I deserve the flack I get.

Once again I'll be quite nice,
but never bend to my advice
for others might not quite agree
and once again start blaming me!

Welcome, new owners of this site
I do not mean to give you fright
the words that spill out from my quill
are never meant to cause no ill!

Just ask around and you will see
there is no nicer man than me,
misunderstood and taken wrong,
not me, occasionally my song.....

The moment created this second, is a moment that's going to last.
It lives the full spectrum of time, the future, the present and past.

I'm with you, quill to paper read between the lines. POET'S make the world spin.

Regarding this:

"But if I mention ghosts or God
please never ever spare the rod.
I know these things can cause upset
and I deserve the flack I get."

I love it when people mention ghosts and God;
and the only ones who will get the rod
will be those who tend to whine and snip --
and, please, don't make fun of my quip.

Okay -- I'm definitely not a poet. That was my first and only attempt. And is "quip" really a word, or did I make that up?

Ivor's here!!!!
Ivor...don't know how I missed this!

Ivor my friend, you're way!
Is my rhyming partner here to stay??
It's been too long you've been away
I've missed you every single day
No one to spar with, no rhyming jokes
I love the humor of you English blokes!
Like Bat Man you're here just in time
To make us laugh with your silly rhyme
You're Santa's gift for the holiday
To lift our spirits when skies are gray
So welcome home...we need you here
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Love ya,

Like the old parable , looks like you've saved the best for the last . Vintage - that fairly tumbles , sparkles , twinkles and dances.

I don't think anyone could top these lines :

"I've learned to read between the lines
for that is where most poetry shines.'

This though ,coruscates - under , over and between.
