Back together New
Maybe the Oldies will get back together, trouble is we can no longer rely on WN staying with us! Rod.

My Review of Rainy Days Remind Me Of You by carol28
Fully understand New
Nothing like a rain storm to bring back memory moments. It is also good to read rhyming poetry, it seems we are going downhill lately. I have never been a free verse fan but lately I find only free verse no matter which site I look on. Enjoyed this one and hope it wasn't based on a true story. Thanks for writing it. Rod.

My Review of What Do We Really Know? by Silverblue
Keep your eyes open
Lovely piece and something that we all question, we live in a very changing world and, to be honest, I am not sure that it is for the better. Everyone is entitled to a point of view and reading your work tells me that you are a very wise and thoughtful person. Great poem and full of truthfulness. Kitty informed me that WN was back on line and said that she was told by yourself so Thanks, I really missed the old days !! SL Take care Rod.

My Review of Why Sports? by richom
Memories.
Glad to see you are still kicking Richard. I played football for many a year and thoroughly enjoyed my time. Like many other things they have changed, in our case, UK, the "Sport" side of things has changed considerably. I believe it is due to the amount of money paid to our players. Quite large amounts and developing into full time jobs which then starts to take the "Sporting" side out of it. I wouldn't call it progress but then I was brought up in a totally different era so my opinions are only agreed by the ageing population. Lovely read as usual Old Mate. S.L. Keep them coming and Take care Rod.

My Review of Puppy Love by JimSlaughter
Been there, done that!
There are so many variations of "Love" and as you say age has nothing to do with it. Believe me I started when I was young, did my apprenticeship and finally achieved my life's ambition. Lovely poem on a lovely subject. SL take care Rod.

My Review of The Scourge of Loathsome Liver by Abra
Fully understand
I had to go through your writers collection as I am a lover of humour poems (Life's too short for anything else!) and I found this one. Really enjoyable and well set up. I like the way you end the last line of each stanza with Liver. Again, a very enjoyable poem. keep them coming. SL for this one. take care Rod.

My Review of A Pickle at the Palace by Abra
Hunger is a virtue
Great rhythm and rhyme and the subject is enough to make your tummy rumble!! I love some of your words, Bicky for instance. I have never tried a swans egg and I guess it is against the law to do so. Good humorous piece and I will be looking forward to more. take care Rod.

My Review of Seems So Easy by Silverblue
Life ain't easy
Another great poem, it reminded me of a song, "It's so easy" in fact I started singing it after reading the last four stanzas. I spent all of my adult life at sea and witnessed many tide turns and Ocean rides. It was the third stanza that moved me the most, speeding seconds and memories that form. Another great read so thanks for taking me down memory lane. Take care Rod.

My Review of Listen Son by Silverblue
Been there, done that!
This will appeal to any father who has reared a son, absolutely great piece and Spotlight worthy. I love the rhythm and the way the last line of each stanza ends with a confirmation. Well written, well presented and well done. Look forward to more. Take care Rod.

My Review of SIGHT by kitty
Helping hand?
I agree Kitty, we can all help each other if we try. I get the feeling that this is "You" and your nature is finely tuned for helping people. Lovely content and so well written. Thanks for sharing My lovely. Take care Rod.

My Review of Countenance by Silverblue
Read my lips
Such a meaningful poem, as you imply the face is an amazing message sender and we can sometimes disguise what we feel and other times we are great give-a-ways. the worse is when we say something but the face displays the opposite. A very well constructed piece and if you could see my face as I write this it would definitely confirm my praise. Take care Rod.

My Review of A Pigeon's Epitaph by richom
Coincidental?
After my recent piece about dementia and word problems this really lights my candle. many of the words came back to me as I read through Richard, many are no longer used but they certainly brought back memories. Loved it and you certainly know how to make a huge subject from ancient material. Well done and SL worthy. take care and forget the last stanza about becoming deceased that's "Gobble de Gook" Rod.

My Review of BECAUSE by kitty
I agree
Unfortunately there are many who do not realise how fortunate they really are Kitty. We seem to live in an era where people think they are entitled to everything instead of appreciating the great love and devotion that is provided by our chosen partners. That's enough of that, lovely piece as always my Lovely. Take care Rod.

My Review of Uncertainties by Silverblue
that's life.
Life is full of uncertainties, been there bought the T-shirt. Great piece, as for the last stanza, I am in a position where there isn't a lot of "Future" left so I know exactly what you mean about "back to where we started!" Very educational piece and very enjoyable. thanks for presenting us "Oldies" with it. Take care Rod.

My Review of A Lifetime by richom
hang about Richard,
This is almost a "Grand Finale" type of poem Richard, please don't give in just yet. I understand exactly what you are saying here and I guess it is age related but it isn't the end of a life time more like an educational account for others to read. I agree with everything you have described here and it does give pleasure to our age group. It is a very interesting analysis of a good life and all that goes with it. I am having trouble remembering things nowadays and to read this provokes the old brain. I can relate to quite a few of your achievements Definitely SL material Old mate. Don't give in as we need you here. Take extra care Rod.

My Review of PAIN by kitty
Life takes no prisoners
I sincerely hope that this is a poem and not a list of facts Kitty, I would dread to think that you were suffering in any way. Sorry that I have been away a bit lately but every now and then I need a break, whiskey helps but not enough to keep me writing!! Once the barbecue season has ended I will be back on form, (hopefully) Please keep healthy for me, take care Rod.

My Review of Bring 'Em Back by richom
It's been years
You certainly have a way of sending me off down memory lane Richard and to be honest it was and is the best lace to be. I accept that we are the aging population but going back over all of the examples of this "Masterpiece" show just how good our lives have been. (I wouldn't welcome the button up flies though, I had enough trouble with that before the zip came into use) Another brilliant memory booster as usual Old Mate. SL Take care Rod.

My Review of Good for Gum by richom
It's been years
The last time I chewed gum must have been twenty years ago Richard and to be honest I used to really enjoy it. I can also remember leaving it in most unhealthy places as you have included in this memory jerking poem. I can also remember the pavements completely dotted by spit out gum and also stuck under the edge of tables! Please tell me you were not in the UK when you were a gum-chewer! Please keep these type of poems coming Richard as they do make bring me nostalgia and that can't be bad. SL for this one old mate, Rod.

My Review of This World Of Woe by michaelgallatin
Life takes no prisoners
Well Mad Mike this opens up the eyes of the Unbent, we should think ourselves lucky especially when yo see these poor souls laying in doorways reeking of urine and booze. We have our fair share here in the UK and yet they are out of house and home and we house and donate benefits to immigrants!! take care Rod.

My Review of Complaints Department Please by Silverblue
Good Moaning
Really amusing piece, I was going to say "Little piece" but that would have been wrong. Very well written and a subject that actually is quite common. I do believe it is more common in the female, if they can't find something to moan about then stand by or run. definitely spotlight worthy and it has brought humour to a very miserable day here. (Heavy rain) there, I can moan about the weather so me and Mavis have something in common. take care. Rod.

My Review of "YOU" by kitty
Well done Mum.
Beautiful piece Kitty and I'm sure Donna will agree. Unfortunately our youngsters move on and live many many miles from their parents, that is the case for Er-indoors and myself. We hardly ever see the Grandchildren but then they have a life to live so what will be will be. Enough before I start getting worked up over it. Take care Kitty, Rod.

My Review of THE PASSAGE by kitty
I agree
I don't believe there will ever be a sane and logical world Kitty, I would like to think it could happen but in many subjects sanity doesn't exist. Happy Birthday to your Boy and make sure you take care when stepping out of your bubble.At last we have a little rain here so the garden is singing a happy song. take care Rod.
