What do you think?

Often, poetry is personal. Son to mother. Man to woman. Father to son. Admirer to admired. As such, much of the best is directed at a specific person, often by name, yet it can apply to others too, and it can lift many. Some can be silly, even stupid, and some can explore depth...
