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 ✨

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

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.

You're welcome, Richard. And thank you for the kind words. I am humbled by them.
Not only spot on form, but both humorous and witty to boot.

Much enjoyed.

Excellent write and right on cue, Love this and your last line tickled my funny bone.
I am a sucker for rhyming poetry and form writes, I believe this falls in a form, but can't place it.
This is quite good.
