Today I Met a True Poet (poem)

Today I Met  A True Poet

Today I met a true poet

Sending shivers down my spine

Not some hero of lore

No Keats, Frost or Dickens

No pantomime

Simply My friend, hand inked

Upon her husband’s hospital bill

tattered Corner torn

Perfection sung prose

A Love note scrawled

her grocery list backing

Words touched Bare

by grace

By love

and the art of goodbye

For moments that love is…
