What I like to do is to is to tap on any pictures on poetbay, which gives me access to some of The coolest writer's that have come before. Stan Cooper is one of them.


I'd like to raise a glass ,
For my poetbay friends,
Also the one's I never new.

To the many that came before,
To the life's past on poetbay.
That are not with us anymore,
There poetry worth reading.

Some may drag us down,
While others may lift us up.
From the floor to the ceiling,
Although I have a funny feeling.

If we go as poets have before,
We may be well forgotten.
Unless poets everywhere,
Ask poetbay to open up.
There doors,  Then I could
Truly raise a glass, Here's to
forgotten poeteers everywhere,
As well as poetbay once more.

Oh yes, Stan was such a lovely man :) Love his poetry, and Toonist's cartoons to accompany them... the both of them brought a lot of smiles with their talents and their kindness. I'm so glad you found his poetry :) Nice tribute, thanks.
