I have met so many friends
who mean the World to me
writing is their passion
for all the World to see.

The first I met was Gerardine
who writes about Nature and life
her witing is so superbly done
a must to escape from strife.

Then I met the intelligent Jingle
passionate about everything she writes
interacting with all her readers
spending countless hours and nights.

Our Blog family grew and flourished
new people come by the day
extending the hand of friendship
commenting and having their say.

Amy's Blog is fun packed
centered on her Family and friends
never a dull moment over there
always setting brand new trends.

Welcome new friend Lily
hard working mum of six
as well as catering for her family
her blogs contain a mix.

Recently we were told
about our Paul and Val
two friends who are man and wife
and everybodys pal.

A new friend to be proud of
Pat is her name
The Lord is her motive
she thanks for her fame.

Then we have the lovely Cindy
in touch with teenage life
her blogs are there to help you
whether you be a mother or wife.

To add to the longest of lists
Beth is a new talent found
her poetry is awsome check it out
I am glad I popped around.

Then we have Brian at Waystation one
a remarkable writer to view
he is kind and considerate, will read your work
and leave a comment for you.

Along with the above
we have the talented KJ
her poetry is an example
to brighten up your day.

Sue owns poetic Blogosphere
a lady of talented prose
her writing infects your very soul
as her passion for poetry grows.

And what about the delightful Kathy
always has your interest at heart
her messages are so inspiring
you don't know were to start.

A new friend met on twitter
moondustwriter is her name
her poetry is fantastic
never sounding the same.

Another new friend from twitter
Becky Wilson is her name
her historic stories fascinate me
Norse culture is her game.

Then we have Grace
a young able writer
her posts are magnificent
and make your days lighter.

 I would like to mention
another of my special friends
Daniel's Haikus are exciting
making words set trends.

And finally we have Crystal
just joined our Blogging crew
her stories are awsome and refreshing
and so is her daughters too.

This mention is to a special friend
who does not own any blogs or site
she has been special to me for many years
an Author in her very own right.

Viola Tabor is her name
my best friend for many a year
she has supported me through thick and thin
and our friendship will always be dear.

Her poems can be found on the public page
this Lady loves God very much
she never tires of family or friends
and rarely tires as such.

So there we are a lengthy list
of talented people Worldwide
this list will get even larger
and our friendship will never subside.

This poem is for the Jingle 4 U Thursday entry and I decided to mention ALL my friends who have joined me personally,and my SPECIAL FRIEND VIOLA TABOR. You have all supported and been very kind to me since I started my Blog in December 2009, this poem celebrates my friendship to you all and I hope we continue to grow into 2010.
I would also like to take this opportunity to thank EVERYONE who has commented on my work...

  2. i feel a bit like we are on our way to gilligan's maybe it is williams island. so glad to have met you and to be included in that list...

  3. Billy this poem is just simply awesome, and you made me feel like I have known your new friends all my life. You my best friend are very speecial to me and my family. As a matter of fact we consider you as a family member. The kids loves their Uncle Billy. I couldn't think about another day going by without you being part of it. Thank you for the wonderful words you wrote about me, I feel the same about you my friend. I will pop over and take a look at some of your friends blog when I have a few extra minutes. I have been on Gerardine from BWOP but couldn't figure out how to leave a comment. I also went on Ji's and couldn't figure out how to leave a comment. But you know me and my old age. My mind doesn't work as well as it once did. I will give it a try again soon. Sending you lots of hugs from Krystal and Jason. By the way Jason reads your poetry for his reading homework sometimes.

  4. Good Day, William:

    From the day I kmnow you, you never disapoint but encourage, teach, cherish, and support me, you are a priceless friend to know and have, I wish all of my readers can come here and read your poem, and get to know how powerful your poetry is to our society, how invaluable your friendship means to everyone in the community, you never let me know for a second, which is
    what I call "heavenly" gift I ever received from anyone outside my family...

    Professor William Manson Is Cool,
    If you are kind to him,
    He is kinder to you,
    If you treat him fair,
    He treats you more fair,
    I have so much joy with this poet,
    No need to doubt,
    Or Hesitate,
    No need to vote,
    Or withhold,
    Be true
    He will be True
    To You

    Master piece on friendship and
    timeless poem for all to enjoy.
