Poetry by L.B. Strawn


Some of my poems have been likened
To those of a poet named Longfellow,
With words which flow like music,
With thoughts that are soft and mellow.

Some have likened them to Joyce Kilmer;
His lovely thoughts about God and a tree.
I could not receive a better compliment;
They are good for my ego and me.

Someone likened them to another poet
Whose name I cannot recall,
But remember that his poetry
Was also that which could enthrall.

So, may my thoughts continue as theirs;
May they set your tender spirit free.
May they also last until the end of time,
Being found in the annals of history.
