new old kid on the blog,
with an occasional
old or new poem written off
the old writer's block
Oh, I like this. Yes, I think that's just right--as if you are a pup, playing at being a man.
Magnificent! How you pack so much wisdom into so few bittersweet lines....
Wonderful poem! And the title adds a lot too, not only the pun but so much else. I heartily agree with both of the previous comments, this one is superb.
Many thanks, friends, for the warm comments--just what this puppy needed.
Left myself a note to comment on this at the time but it got buried in a pile of other stuff and I've just run across it. Nothing to say that's not already been said by those who made more timely responses but I still wanted to record my appreciation. I appreciate its quiet profundity.
Jim,I don't think there's a shelf life on voicing your appreciation about creative commodities! Thanks for "belatedly" telling me this one touched a nerve.
