Thanks dear Ji for including me.. you’re such a sweet friend.
Count me in.
please visit 18, not 12 blogs to fulfill the requirement…
here’s mine Jingle
Beginning this week, we need to visit 18, not 12 poets to fulfill requirement…
Thank you jingle for including me, but sweetie, I have to bow out as far as reading new poets for right now. Taking care of my husband and grandkids is taking most of my day, with only enough time to keep up with all the bloggers that I am commenting for now. Sorry my friend, but you know if time permits me then I will visit new poets as I can.
Viola– we all send our love and support. You are rallying just by doing what you do!
I love Thursdays…
cool to see you.
Greetings Jingle, I have returned from my venture, renewed with many new poems to share :D. anyway, i would like to get back into the swing of things if you dont mind me coming back from my, unintentional absences. I hope all is well with you and the group, i look forward to becoming part of everything again. 😀
you are always welcome,
I will link you in..
count me in …this is so fun!
will link you in.
mines up, but then you already know that.
I’m just letting you know here. lol.
I think i usually get to over twenty anyway.
I’ve been lucky as in having days off on wednesday.
But that luck cant last forever.
So if i ever dont get 18, its because my job wont let me. lol
hi jingle , you know what ? the job ihas been already done.so you have to count me in .thanks and good luck .
all done jingle- combed everyone elses but there are those whom i really do not know how to post comments on like shakiras for instance..
simply skip if you are unable to comment.
I’m reading as I type Jingle, taking my night out to see if I can comment on 18 new faces.
I’m posted and here http://wp.me/pR8wn-3q
Thanks as always for your patience. I’ve been under tremendous strain, but I do love contributing to your poets rallyxx
okay, will link you in,
Count me in Jingle I’ve read my eighteen but I’ll certainly get around to others as time permits! Great new writers.
I will place your link in.
I’m new to this but I thought I’d give it a try. I hope you’ll include me in your poetry list.
Working on my 18 now.
I will place your link in now.
You’re very kind, thank you!
I have one question. May we submit poems that were posted at an earlier date, not necessarily created the week of the new rally? Just curious b/c I have a couple that were posted before I found this site :3
yes, any poem is fine!
Wonderful! I added a link to your blog on my blog :3 I hope I can participate every week!
welcome any time!
My contribution for this week Ji…Will post the awards and do the rounds later…Thanks….Cheers!

I have finished reading all the great new poets and have commented. Here’s my poem for this weeks rally:

HONOURED TO POST XXX THESE HAIKUS WERE BEAUTIFUL, YOU ALWAYS MAKE ME SMILE COMING HERE, ITS ALWAYS A PLEASURE, I WILL VISIT 18 FRESH POETS TOMORROW, ITS A PROMISE XXX
Jingle, I will post in just a bit. I will work on commenting on 18 blogs it might take me all day…my laptop hard drive is shot and I’m having to work from a couple of shared desktops in the house…but I will get to them!
take your time..
I appreciate your patience.
Hi Jingle Here is my post. Thanks again, I am catching on. I only put a little Haiku with the nomination but I have several new posts. This is a lot of fun and inspirational. I still have some reading left to do but I will be up late and I will be home all day tommorow so that will be great. Thanks so much,

Wow!! Best of luck to all the wonderful poets. I may not join officially but I’ll get around to visit some poets, I hope!!

Hi Jingle. Thanks for inviting me. Unfortunately I won’t be able to participate this time. I will, however, read some new poets over the weekend. Hopefully, I’ll be able to work on some new writing and participate in coming weeks. Work is very time consuming right now.
Please feel free to remove my name from the list until I can fully participate. Thanks once again, my friend!
have a relaxing time!
see you then…
I can’t believe I’m on the fresh poets list! Thank you so much! How did you find out about me?
easy, via tag surfer…
That’s cool. What stood out about my work to you? Anyway, I am now following you and I added your page to my blogroll!
I look and feel like it is a good one, then I save the link…over one week, I collect all those and share with fellow poets…
welcome to be a participant,
simply give me a link to a poem,
comment for 18 participants under my list,
then you are done…

I have completed my 18 and posted a new poem – Things are hectic but I should be back next week –

Thank you so much for including my blog 🙂
I’m off to start visiting the other poets now, although I see quite a few in your list that I already read daily.
I will post a link soon.
I’m so glad to be back!!! As usual, I’m in for this week’s rally and here’s my post;
I’m off to visit other bloggers’ posts, I will inform you when I’m done!
Hi Jingle. Thanks for your comments and thank you for the invite, it’s much appreciated and I’m looking forward to being a part of such a great community.
Jingle was kind enough to select me as a “Perfect Poet” for Week 21 of the Thursday Poets’ Rally, and for that I humbly thank her.
Here is something I created in response to a Challenge at the Undead Poets Society site:
In woodland vale and faerie glen
In woodland vale and faerie glen,
With hornèd brow, and manner keen,
Great Cernunnos, beheld I then,
With Nymphs and Dryads was he seen.
His manner fey, his glance serene,
‘mongst revelers held in his sway,
‘midst shadows which remain unseen,
With graceful steps he made his way.
The dance began at eventime,
Such skillful, flowing movement,
Of silken limbs with grace sublime,
How couldst there be improvement?
The wind was tossed, the leaves all blown,
Thus caught, I was enamourèd,
At cock’s crow, all but I had flown,
Ill-used and faerie glamourèd.
So traveler, ‘ware! Stray not this way,
Lest cares and woe befall you then,
Hard trudge, your path, ‘til break of day,
Lest to my fate you be sore ta’en.
I would encourage all Poets (Undead or otherwise) and lovers of poetry, to visit the Thursday Poets’ Rally. There is some good stuff out there!
As part of my responsibility as a “Perfect Poet” I would like to nominate Shakira as a Perfect Poet for Week 22.
(Undead)Poet / Wizard / Teller-of-tales
Here we go Jingle. Going to give this a try.

Fanstastic opinions on this post. It is unlikely in this day and age to get pages with information you are interested in. I’m relieved I came upon this website.
I am having trouble linking to the Thursday poet post?
Can you help?
With this poem, I would like to participate in the Thursday Poets’ Rally:
I have a few more poems on my blog… please feel free to read through them, before deciding 🙂
Your comments would be most welcome…
Ofcourse I have already started visiting fresh poets, and am throughly enjoying the reads! Will surely let you know when I am done with the 18, as per the requirement..
Thanks for the encouragement..
Rally week 24 is not open yet…
you must have a new poem,
and I have new rules to announce on Wednesday…
I will be posting a new poem a little later today…
As for reading/commenting on the works of fresh poets, it’s difficult to stop once you’ve begun… And frankly, I have no clue how many I might’ve read thus far, but I am pretty sure I have read and commented on well over 20!!!! 🙂
So… whenever u deem right, please do let me know if I am in 🙂
Thanks once again for taking the time..
since you started commenting,
after you are done,
I will count you as week 23 participants…
New poem posted, as promised!!!
Visited at least 18 fresh poets’ blogs, and commented as well.. 🙂
Waiting to hear back from you and them as well…
Its really a great post. I am sure that anyone would like to visit it again and again. After reading this post I got some very unique information which are really very helpful for anyone. This is a post having some crucial information. I wish that in future such posting should go on.
