I tell anyone who is willing to listen. When we read a reader or poet. We make their words come alive. When we read the ancient writers. We allow them to live again. Best honor for a writer. To be read Richard. Thank you for sharing your amazing words and your thoughts.

Hello Richard and I always enjoy your work.
This was so much fun to read. I think you captured an older style of English in a way that pulled your readers into the time period while keeping it something all audiences can read. I am such a fan of bards and storytelling through poetry and song. You have given us something that plunges us into an old creative world rich with wonder.

Also incredible the way you kept the flow throughout the whole piece!

That is what writing is like for most of us who do craft words into ideas and images. I enjoyed this poem a lot

funny how I missed reviewing this, surely I read it but not sure why I didn't review it? from tip to toe, from the first word in title to the last word in last line, every sentence it's You at your best self, and I never knew You but like that, the "best self". I love the "smart reader" line because sometimes it requires a smart reader to "read", the same way that we see many poets who write in a beautiful way, but few who write in a smart and beautiful way. I admire your third verse, how You turned from creativity to life itself, the attitude the Bard choses to take not in poetry but also in life, this sonnet specially flows with a wonderful simplicity, and in sonnets as far as I know it's hard to keep it simple like that, your choice of the English sonnet and still making it simple like that is a perfect fit for your theme and of course "smartly" done :)

for the long years of giving in poetry, it's us who must bow in deep respect and gratitude~ Happy Days Sir Richard ✨

As usual for you & sonnets, everything perfectly polished, along with great art to gaze upon. The thing I like the most about this one is how there's no heavy Elizabethan dialect, which isn't easy or fun for me to read (& you know I'm the type of poet who just wants to have fun) . . . and instead, this sounds nicely conversational, while also retaining the formality of style & topic. Good on you for encouraging other writers in this way. Hope your new year is staring with contentment (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

I always find your poems interesting to browse, Richard. The words are always interesting and in some constructive format that's easy to navigate. I find that's becoming less and less viable on this site these days.
