virtual ball in Tuscany


invitation to

a poets’ party

yes, i’ll come!

where?  what

better place than

Boboli’s garden;

grounds of the

Pitti Palace, in

fair Florence,

heart of the



hanging out

at “the Pub”,

d’Verse Poets,

is part of my

personal poetic


fair garden of


each statuesque,

monumental in

creative voice.


here i can

find “The (an)

Abundance” of

poetic ideas,

original online

fruits of writers

dedicated to

sculpting marble

thoughts into words

to share veritable

bounty of beauty.


raise your hand

clink the glass

give a toast (of

bronze wheat,

golden corn or

ripened vine)

to salute the

“pub tenders”,

party hosts who

serve all a happy

3rd anniversary!

    To us – long life, good health and cheers mates! Three years plus one at OneStop = it’s been quite a ride. Here’s to more and more successes for all our poets!

    (glass raised…air-clink) Cheers! I agree writing poetry can be just like sculpting the perfect scene … just with words.

    Hear hear! That abundance of poetic ideas you speak of so eloquently here is exactly what inspires me to be in your company. Wonderful to be celebrating through verse, especially this one.

    Abundance is an underused word and fits nicely in this ode to our community. Well done….

    Isn’t it true? dVerse is a renaissance-kind of place. Wish I could be there, at those gardens, too! Literally, that is.

    smiles… i’m looking forward to that party…and what a beautiful place as well… though as long as there are poets around every place is a good place…smiles
    the lady with whom i stayed in london had a poem on the toilet wall – and when i read that poem (and it was a good one) i felt a bit at home..smiles
