Poets die,
Their words,
Live on.

Boned frame,
Rotting flesh,
Consumed,
By the Earth.

Yet,
Message and meaning,
Take their place,
In the eternal realm,
Reserved for “the few,”
Willing and able,
To partake of the joys,
Hidden in “songs of the heart.”

We can only hope Doc! I always wonder if anything I write will survive me. Cool thought!

God bless the poets!
Soldiers fight with their swords...The Poet with a pen! And as we all know...the pen is mightier than the sword.

Great men have been elected to become President and the world remembers them for their great speeches in times of crisis, but isn't it interesting that a generation later, we may forget his name, or the year he was President, that it is his WORDS that we remember ...and nine times out of ten...the poet/speech writer is rarely mentioned...but years from now those words live on to perpetuity! God bless the poet!
