"Esker" (Know as Steve to many)

Words flowed,
From your thoughts most days.
Times of hardship had their ways
Yet through the clouds you shone.

A man singing your song
Now gracing heavens door
We still hear your words
We still follow the score.

Thank you young Wolf
Your cry is heard.
In the forests and glades
Cities where we played.

Across the world of poetry.
Thank you for being part
Of our days here.
Your presence felt.

As we journey on.

is missed by us all as is Lonnie. They can't be replaced

I had not forgotten Our Lonnie, but this was just a message on the 1st anniversary of Steve leaving us.
Thanks Stan for the reminder, but Lonnie will have his own special verse when it is his anniversary.
Richard said he would sort out something but I hadn't heard from him this week..
There was a bit a while back where all Stevens poems were going to be saved I wanted to send them to Lori, but am still waiting..
Take care young woodsman and my best wishes to Susan,
Yours as always Ian..

he out stands in list of unread
some one should honour him
eitther each one should be read ..at least by all neopoets
or the ADM ought to remove it
why belittle such a great poet

even i remove mine when for a week IF still unread
in my fans list was he
now all there have left
new ones don't me accept
ole man no
bard u say only

I will sort out Steven's works if possible as I need a copy for Lori, I had a letter from her a week or so ago and sent the postage stamps I had been saving for the people there.
As you are still with us I think you can sort out your works into blocks and store on your comp as I do.
Take care and thanks for your reply,
Yours Ian..

It takes time to sort all your poems out, I go to each one, copy then un-publish,
First paste it onto a word document so that you have a copy.
I have a few of mine to do soon as I have been so busy with Family, also with poets that need more than just comments.
You take care and know we walk with you always..
Yours Ian ..

if you want your own 'Complete Works' from Neopoet it is soooo easy.

Neopoet is a workshop. Poets take the time to read and think about your work and offer suggestions.
There is no obligation to make any changes however please acknowledge critique and comments.

It is a very simple matter, technically speaking, to download all our works. We can all do it for ourselves at https://www.neopoet.com/backup-all , voila! Instant "Complete Works".

The thing is for Andrew to download Steven's works for you and what you will do with them, alone or with help. Forgive me but we all want the best for Steven's works so should you be doing this alone? Is there anyone who you would like to help you with layout, graphics, and especially output forms? (no, I am not volunteering). Are you in a dialogue with Andrew? What do you plan to do with it? Are you planning to do it alone?

Anyhoo, the technicalities are no part of the problem. You must talk directly with Andrew.

And Lovedly, if you want your own 'Complete Works' from Neopoet it is soooo easy.

Just thought that Lori would love to have a copy of his works, we have gone through this before and you helped with the advise as always.
When I have more time to do things I will sort out something, Take care young Jess and thanks for your help..

this is a good heartfelt tribute in verse to a departed soul

raj (sublime_ocean)

The loss of Steven along with two of my family brought tears.
Lori wrote to me a week or so ago, and I have continued to send postage stamps to her for the people there as she thought it was lovely to have them and they can change them to Dollars to buy extras.
You take care and know we all walk this pathway, without knowing what is ahead..
Yours Ian..
