the jewel that is your beloved city.

Hi Larisa, thanks for the comment on my profile. I am attempting to de-cypher its mysteries. T

My nickname at my last job used to be 'terry Christian' you can imagine why, but I'll see if I can dig out a microphone and have a go!
(-Posted this on my own page like the low tech person I am!) Thanks for taking a look at Richard Burton. best wishes, Steve

Thank you so much for the comment on my poem "I'm Not Perfect". I wrote this poem because I'm not perfect and I don't want to be. The many mistakes I've made have made me stronger.

just popped on to say
GOOD LUCK UKRAINE!!

hi , i love your poem MY WISHES, it is very much my style, the short stanzas and monosyllabic lexis creates a snappy and straight to the point poem. the paralinguistic form places good emphasis on the differences of WANTS, WISHES and NEEDS, and many of my poems also use this paralinguistic style.

Glad you enjoyed "A Trip to the Chemist", Larisa. I wasn't sure that some of the references would be easily understood by you. I hope so.
I enjoyed your joke!

Hello Larisa - I visited your website and found it creative and colourful! And what a fine looking city Odessa is...the photographs show it to be a grand mixture of the past and present, with some beautiful buildings and in a perfect position by the sea. Its "Steps" are familiar to film audiences everywhere. You are indeed fortunate to be a daughter of such a fair (as in "lovely") and famous city.

Thank you for you comment on Canvas Larisa.

Hello Larisa - what argument? :-))
Here's something I remember from a wise friend of many years ago:
Argument is the food of vanity
Discussion is the food of knowledge.
As I recall - we were discussing something.
I don't think I've met any real argument on WOL...that's why I enjoy it so much.

I was in error, Poetry should be read slowly so it is digested properly. I failed the first commandment. Naughty Nick. Bit too busy writing plays at the moment so I let things slip a bit, sorry! Keep going with your good writing, Regards, Nick,

Hi Larisa, 'Life in Couplets' is indeed a joke and the picture intended to catch the eye. A revised version is up now if you would like to go back and suffer it again. Ta much for commenting, Nick.
Sun 18th Mar 2012 11:56
Hi Larisa, where have you gone? We miss your wit and wisdom from the beautiful city of Odessa. Send us a sign!!
Mon 12th Mar 2012 16:29
Thank you, dear Lynn. I am waiting. I don't understand him at all.
Mon 12th Mar 2012 16:26
Ah! I see there is no need now, and you have tagged it successfully already. xx
Mon 12th Mar 2012 16:23
MC is honestly trying to help you, and of course you are not a fool, no one would ever think that.
I shall try and think of a better way of explaining what he means and send it in a short while. xx

Just been on your website for a taste. There are loads left for me to nibble.
(Humourous Poems)I AM LAURA'S STOMACK.
Appealing dietry monologue from the inside-out. At last, acceptance!
Thu 23rd Feb 2012 01:40
My dearest Larisa, thank you so much for your extremely kind comments on 'Good Dreams, Bad Dreams' - I really was not expecting such a strong reaction to this poem, which makes it all the more pleasing! Best wishes, Dave. xx

Bless you, Larisa. I'm glad the poem spoke to you. I knew it was possible that no one would even bother to read it, since I'm getting a bit of a reputation for 'complexity' sometimes. And I don't do it on purpose. I think that Simplicity and Complexity are two hands in the same mitten. Speaking of 'winter' - I miss the magical snowfalls of my Canadian girlhood. There is nothing to compare to them. And, as you probably noticed, I am a former singer as well, speciallizing in Music of the Church, but singing in all genres. I found 'Art Songs' from all countries challenging and also personally rewarding. They always made me feel like a citizen of the world.

Hi Larisa, Thx xo much for looking at my latest offering.
I think Jazz is a lot like poetry in many ways.
Glad you liked it.
Sun 15th Jan 2012 15:16
Hi Larisa - thank you so much for your kind comments on 'Wish To Enthrall' :) Glad you like it...
Best wishes, Dave

Thank you Larisa, glad you enjoyed. Just put up a new one if you're interested.

Thanks for commenting on 'Around All Our Tables', my response is also shown on the poem's page so that it can make sense to anyone who wishes to see it in context. :)
To answer your query, you can choose to use 'up' instead of 'down', or even 'along', though it is rather more usual for similar phrases to use 'down'.
Big hugs for you my friend, and a Merry Christmas (perhaps you celebrate it later as in the Russian Orthodox calender?)
Take care, Dave

It's not just at football and rugby that England and Scotland have a rivalry. These are just examples. The best way I can describe the relationship of England and Scotland is that they are like brothers. They may be rivals, they may fight each other but they are family.
Incidentally, my suggestion that The Good and The English was the answer to question 1 was a joke response. If you are entering a proper competition I do not think this will do as an answer. I'm afraid I don't know the real answer.
Thu 15th Dec 2011 23:51
So, as far as I understand it comes to RUGBY or may be to FOOTBALL? I don't know.
Thu 15th Dec 2011 22:24
"The Good and the English".
It's a joke, really. Although the English and the Scots are united as British, England and Scotland have fought each other for nearly 2000 years. The last battle between England and Scotland was at Culloden in 1745. When England play Scotland at football or rugby, the Scots till refer to England as "The Old Enemy".
Thu 8th Dec 2011 14:45
Hi Larisa - cheers for your kindly comments. And by the way - 'SUMMER, AUTUMN, WINTER, SPRING': lucky whoever to have someone feel that way about them. A simple, spare, well-crafted poem that says it all and more.
Mon 5th Dec 2011 22:49
You should let us be the judge of that.
Anyway, I don't profess to speak or understand Italian to love the music of the language.
Mon 5th Dec 2011 21:28
Thankyou for your thoughts on language you posted on my Profile page.
An idea - why don't you post one of your own poems in Ukrainian with an audio so we can hear the music of your language?
Sat 12th Nov 2011 14:37
Thank you Larisa for your comment on Just give me a cowboy poet.
Mon 31st Oct 2011 17:21
'An Englishman's Home' thanks Larisa appreciated your comments although the eucalyptus tree in question is in next door's garden and guarded by 2 black Labradors whose teeth can cut through bone.
Nice to hear from you though.
Tue 11th Oct 2011 07:44
Hi Larisa, Thank you so much for your kind comments on 'True Love Starts' - the inspiration for that piece came from the picture I posted with it. :) Best wishes, Dave
Wed 21st Sep 2011 21:10
Hi Odessa girl.
so pleased that you like
Wed 24th Aug 2011 22:19
Larisa, thank you very much for your lovely comments about Apparition. I have never won anything before so this is a surprise. Graham.
Tue 16th Aug 2011 21:49
Thanks very much for the comment, really appreciate it and yeah I think it meant "I'll read it again" Either that or a new form of abbreviation has been invented.
Sun 14th Aug 2011 21:57
Hi Larisa, thanks for missing me. I am fine, thanks, but been away from this site too long! I have missed you and some other lovely friends on here as well. Love, Lynn xx
Sun 14th Aug 2011 00:10
re your comment on 'kill and love' -I could murder a pint and love the doing of it. ;o)
Sat 13th Aug 2011 21:35
...hello Larisa..very encouraging comment..thank you...cheers..chris.
Wed 1st Jun 2011 20:37
Hi Larisa-hope you dont mind but I never disclose my email adress-but you certainly have my vote on your poem 'Escape'-hope it counts!
Wed 20th Apr 2011 22:15
Hi Larissa, thank you so much for lovely comments on "I hear you", and for all the other nice things you have said. I agree it is lovely to meet like minded people on a site like this, and being from different countries can just make it more interesting, I think.
Wow, very impressed with your website, didn't realise you teach Russian. It looks a great thing to be doing, and as I say, the website looks really impressive. Love Lynn xx
Tue 12th Apr 2011 08:13
Thanx Larisa, will have to do that! I've never been there or Ukraine, but know someone of Ukranian decent very well lol. I've heard Odessa is a lovely place and I'm sure the girls are too. I've been to the Gambia, but don't know any Gambian women as well. I wasn't comparing the Ukranian girls in preference to other eastern countries, all very nice, but (your fave word lol) will take your word for it. I'm glad you approve of my use of 'the', thought I had cocked it up! Your English is better than mine! Thanks Jeff X
Mon 3rd Jan 2011 17:26
Hi Laura, I think perhaps you are a little hard on yourself, but it is a good exercise to look back over our older poems and see if they can be improved. Personally I think you write very well in English, but we can all 'hone' our work better by returning to it after a while, Some of my poems have been 'tweaked' not just once, but several times over the years and I'm sure I will continue to do that :) Best wishes, Dave

Hi Larisa - no problem - good to hear from you again. I've not been on here much lately! I always read your poems though when I see them.
Fri 10th Dec 2010 14:18
Thanks for your comments on Pit and Pendulum.
I didn't realise that I ran on "saw inside" to make it sound like "saw rinside". Just a laziness of pronunciation on my part, I expect.
Do you find regional variations in English hard to understand or are you OK with these differences?
I worked in Scotland some time ago at a factory where there were a lot of Polish workers. They could not understand me but could understand perfectly the locals (from Glasgow) whom I could not understand!
Mon 6th Dec 2010 14:31
Just enjoyed your verses, Larisa.
