This is to all the great Master Poets of art,
Having the skills, the words, and the smarts.
Emotions you've captured, the thoughts you provoked.

Pouring your heart out with pen in your hand,
Orchestrating your words like no one can.
Elizabeth Browning, Dickinson, Shakespeare, and Poe,
Twain and Frost - these great ones you know.
Reflecting on their works, which have brought us to tears.
Yes, yearning for more, we felt all their fears.

Masterfully crafted their words - they can fool,
Artist on paper, their pen is their tool.
Strategy playing with rhythm and rhymes,
Touching our hearts and enriching our minds.
Experts and masters, their poems live on.
Reflecting on your memory now that you're gone.
So, thanks for your poetry. I leave with this thought, "How do I Love Thee?"

Winning Poem for our April 2019 Poetry Contest - Acrostic Poems

Interview with Debra L. Brown, the winner of our Acrostic Poetry Contest

  • How long have you been writing poetry and what got you started?
    You asked how long I have been writing poems. I have been writing since the early 2000s. I was inspired by the former pastor of my church, Pastor Kinsey. He was a school teacher. He’d had what was called talent night, the last Sunday night of the month. We had to sing, read or quote scripture from memory, read or write a poem. One time he requested everyone to write a poem to “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star." It was after that he told me to never stop writing poetry.
  • Your poems feature a variety of topics: faith, humor, grief, love, and family. Which one do you enjoy writing about the most?
    Out of all of the topics that I have written about, the one I enjoy writing about is Faith. The words always seem to flow.
  • In your introduction, you mentioned liking history. If you could live in a different time period, which one would you choose?
    You asked if I could choose to live in a different time period, what it would be. I would like to live in 1835, in the Victorian era. I always loved that time period and would love to spend a Christmas in that era, just to see the Victorian house all decorated in pine and in all the glory and splendor, the horse drawn carriages and the dances with the ladies all dressed up in the dresses of that time period and the men looking as if they had come from a wedding in their top hats and tails. It was such a beautiful period in time.

Heartiest congratulations, Debra. A well-deserved win. My favorite poem is Robert Frost's "The Road Not Taken." I read it for the first time during my school days and it always inspires me to take the less traveled road.

Thank You, Joydip; your words are too kind. I remember when I was growing up, hearing a lot of the old famous poems, and they have made an impression on me. Since April was National Poetry month, I thought the old famous poets deserved to be honored. Blessings to you, my friend, and thanks again.

I enjoyed your poem. It was a nice tribute to the Old Poets in history for National Poetry month. I thought it was creative to end with Elizabeth Barrett Browning poem "How Do I Love Thee?"
Best Regards,
