Ode to Ivyevelyn
Let's give credit where credit is due
Well maybe it isn't being given to you
But I will accept with Grace
My rightful position of first place.
We have here a lady who will not succumb
To the odds no doubt not in her favor
Nevertheless she will not be deterred
Her voice will continue to be heard.
The artistry of this poem
Will cause all to listen and then agree
Ivyevelyn writes such wonderous verse
Surely she must be placed first.
Wake up and read her subtle words
Who said that - "it's for the birds"
You, sir, need to listen to her voice
There;s time to listen, then rejoice.
She has stepped forward for herself
No she won't be put on the shelf
Her poetry will ring and assail your ears
Her work will be heralded for many years.
Please continue on with your poetic work
Ivyevelyn will always cheer
But remember when she lays down her pen
Your work will be observed but not 'til then.
My ode to myself might not be taken well
After all you might realize in time
We must put ourselves in first place
Don't allow others to win the race.
Ivyevelyn duly Crowned
Her poems will linger in your mind
If you are lucky you'll get a copy signed
Don't come forward with your humble verse
Wait and listen to hear Ivyevelyn first.
Ivyevelyn does not need accolades
She writes her own and gives due value
To a lady of exceptional worth
Her poems will be famous on this earth.
Take a step back and accept with grace
That Ivyevelyn is in first place.
Don't ever think that I should refrain
And allow another to take her reign.
Now i sit regally on my throne
I challenge any of you poets
To deny me my rightful entry
Here I am, Queen of Poetry.
