Christmas Friendship Poems
British film critic/poet Richard Jack Smith and I write film poems and include them in our movie reviews. So itís not surprising that we send each other rhymes instead of Christmas cards during the holiday season. Below are excerpts from this yearís exchange. What fun!
To Richard from Betty Jo
You see a film with poetís eye.
So your reviews poetify.
In each review your language soars.
And reading them opens new doors.
Thanks for all the great work you do.
Loud Christmas Cheers, Richard, to you!
To Betty Jo from Richard
An imaginative lady of the arts
Shaping hopes, dreams and hearts.
You make these times better
Through mastery of the letter.
A soul inside the celluloid
Knowing things to like or avoid.
