The theme for February’s meeting was food poems

Updated our little Web site be
With notes from our last reverie
Of dressing and undressing free
And of mystery that perplexes me.
Our next meeting already set
On February 24 at 4 don’t fret.
A light repast awaits, you can bet.
Have I disappointed yet?
Then while our appetites we sate
With abundance from the plate
We shall give over to our fate.
With poems about food, let us celebrate.
 Here are the poems that we read. Thank you for all your contributions. Here’s my tribute to you in the style of William Carlos Williams.
This Is What I Say

the Internet
