You are a very
intelligent teen
I had once been

travel makes us wild
and wisdom wise wide
you have that acumen

inculcated may be
to me it came naturally
so I ask all who read me

Abide With Me

Hi, Lovedly,
In most of your poems, I usually find a few words that could stand alone - a poem in and of themselves. "I ask all who read me, come and abide with me." I think that's exactly what most poets want and need.
Thank you,

I'm not quite sure of what you mean Can you elaborate what is lacking in my poems pl Thanks

Hello, Lovedly
So sorry I wasn't clear. I meant that sometimes there are a few words within a poem that are so profound, they strike me as a poem by themselves. I didn't mean that the rest of the poem is lacking, just that "I ask all who read me, come and abide with me" really stood out and touched me.
Thank you!

This poem really touched me, and especially the last few lines. Beautiful thought.
