Wonder Wednesday #14 Regifting

Hello everyone!  Okay, I am teasing you a bit.  We aren't writing about regifting.  We are going to do something unique.  I did mention we would do another gift type prompt.   Do you remember?!   We are going to post on our blogs,  a poem or poems that we felt were a gift.  Then link it here, so we can share this gift with others.  It can be a poem that spoke to you directly, or maybe it made you gasp-it was so beautiful or unique.   Maybe it was a poem or poems that you feel would please others.  However you view this challenge, this regift will be one we all will like n' enJOY!   Are you game for regifting?

Please, be sure to link the poet, who wrote the poem.  It is a gift that keeps on giving!

  1. This was hard for me to do! I could pick poems from all of you, that have inspired, delighted me and made me ponder the world. Thank you poets for sharing your beautiful voices! I might do another listing. We all inspire each other at different times and I will do this again! I felt happy n' sad, as I selected the poems(gifts) to share! I would like to try this again-you all have inspired me! Thank you for gifts, your voices and for sharing your souls at Poets United! @>----------

  2. It is hard - I don't have one favorite poem.

  3. Ellie, such a wonderful idea, during these busy days, to take the time to appreciate other poets' work. This community of talented and kind and encouraging poets has been the best thing that has happened to me in years. Thank you, all of you. I will pick a couple of poems that have especially moved me....but ALL of your work moves, inspires, and enriches me, day after day.

  4. Thank you for the chance to pass on a poem that has inspired me. I have chosen Lighthouse by Red Dirt Girl. I hope you like it :)

  5. This was so easy for me to do today--and the perfect prompt--my daughter is better

  6. Great idea, but I'd suggest making sure it's all right with the poet before posting another person's poem. Nothing should be assumed.

  7. Maybe another day I could pick among the many poems that have been gifts from the poets I have come to spend my days with. Today I ducked that difficult task completely by choosing gifts that came to me before I ever knew there was on-line poetry. Thanks for the prompt.

  8. Susan-I understand! enJOY your gifts :D

    Fireblossom-You are right! Sometimes people don't want surprises..I did make sure to add copyright. Yes, wise advice...

    Audrey-I am happy your daughter is better! :D

    Mametz-Thank you for sharing :D

    Sherry-I agree with you! So many have moved me, it was hard to pick~ Well spoken, as always ;D

  9. I would also have chosen Shawnacy Kiker's "Rave On, Beautiful Girl" as Sherry did, and i don't want to repeat. Mind if I just link my choices here?

    "Little Summer" by Mama Zen

    "Dreams Of Earth And Heaven" by Lolamouse

    and Hedgewitch "Tale Of The Nine-Tailed Fox"

  10. I have chosen to make a gift of Sting's songs and profound lyrics. It is a sad post but ends with hope.

  11. If I had to make a gift of a poem, it would be "i carry your heart with me" by e.e.cummings. The copyright laws regarding the display of his poetry is fairly prohibitive, so I have shared a reading of it on Skywriting.

  12. Thank you so much for this opportunity. I also loved the poem by Shawnacy Kiker that Sherry Marr has shared, and it has become a gift for me as well. Thank you so much.

  13. Chhavi-Thank you for your choices :D Gorgeous picks~

    Kerry- I love your choice-it is one of my favs! Thanks for sharing~

    Ninotaziz-His lyrics are profound-I will have to look further at his work~ Sad-we have to hold onto hope!

    Fireblossom-Thanks for reminding me of the copyright issues. Oh, I can't wait to read all of these. I love all of these poets :D

  14. this was hard but I managed to finally narrow it to a few.

    Kerry O'Connor - great poem, that's my favorite poem by him!

  15. Ella,

    This is a busy time with gifts and the buying and wrapping. I spent some time thinking of your poetry prompt and decided to simply write a poem of my own. It is very personal and was written with a person in mind:)
    Happy Christmas preparations,

  16. Eileen-This is fine...and it is so well done :D Happy Christmas to you~

    Goneahead-I love your choices! I want to read them again ;D
