  • POEM: The Crocodile Hunter (Acrostic) by Connie Marcum Wong (10/6/2014 4:16:00 AM)

    Change this:

    I t is of great comfort knowing your are

    to

    I t is of great comfort knowing you are

    Using Google search for the Crocodile Hunter website, I found that... and for conservationist Steve Irwin, I learnt that the Steve Irwin Day is celebrated on the 15th of November.

    By contacting various websites, you may be able to pass on your tribute poem to BLESS others beyond our poemhunter website, even if it's just a link to your poem...

    Thanks for remembering Steve and his family in this way.

  • POEM: I Trust In Jesus by Michael P. Johnson (9/27/2014 3:59:00 AM)

    Another spiritual poem that offers food for thought. I know punctuation helps poetry, just as exclamation marks help to make the words convey the passion. You might also consider 8 lined verses to keep the reader on track and not scroll down further for a long poem, added to by extra line gaps.

    I admire the Scripture terms used which explain that our Royal Pardon was bought and paid for by the Redeemer promised in the Book of Genesis, when Adam and Eve sinned. Upon sharing your faith, Jesus says He is not ashamed to call you His brother...

  • POEM: Pray Out Your Past..... by Michael P. Johnson (9/27/2014 3:40:00 AM)

    You may prefer to write in a precise style eg 8 syllables then 6 then 8 then 6. While this style isn't easy, we can get more if we keep reading the written lines to confirm they fit or not. I've tried this style for years and found it most helpful. I use it for my Christian poetry and my Stephen Gayford wildlife poetry.

    Your poetry doesn't flow smoothly, but it does contain a lot of pure thoughts that keep the Christian reader interested. When we use the Name Of Jesus as in Jesus's robe or Jesus' robe or Jesu's robe, the poetry isn't always helpful as if we were to use Christ's robe or the Lord's robe or even the Rabbi's robe.

    So when the syllables don't fit using certain names or words we may have to rethink the phrasing. Apart from a few phrases, I noticed a few errors like it is shortened to its instead of it's. Sometimes a comma when it wasn't meant to be there. But all things considered, there's a lot going for this poetry. Sincerity of purpose, faith in the future, becoming a follower of the Way.
