Oh Floridian Poet

Living alone in Florida
who will know
the intrinsic worth
of what you have or owned

gift them all to the neighbors
a museum maybe
or to an elderly home
who may be more needy...

alas of what use else
except your poetry
bequeath it all to me
for sake of posterity,

we shall our publication print
and
the links of bondage will never sink,
they will be left in indelible ink

I agree with Jayne that Joe would appreciate this poetic response evoked by his poetry...through and through it had a feel of a salute ...it would have been even nicer if you had left out the last stanza though I know you have done it to add a dash of humor...however, i said it because it veered off the serious lane...yet...it reflects how liberal you are in praise of poems contributed by others...it was truly touching in that sense...thank you for posting it...love and regards

you are so kind

hope he will have
me in mind
luv ur regards
u 2 do shine

Ok Loved it is your poem and your discretion is what counts...

it veered off the serious lane...
yet...it reflects how liberal you are in praise of poems contributed by others. thanks for this raj

sorry raj
I veered and couldn't see the day light
you tried to show
now I awaken to the glory of a new morn
the last para has been torn
I have held Joe in high esteem
helped him his loneliness gleen
