The Ringing Of The Bards-- Week 5

Cecilia of Clear Candy Daily is our hostess for this week's Ringing Of The Bards-- a celebration of poets and poetry from around the world. In this week's Ringing we have poets representing Lebanon, Iraq, New Zealand, Kazakhstan, one secret agent from somewhere, one from somewhere in the stars, one from on the road, several from Europe, the Philippines, Canada, a Cod Sandwich, England, and the US of A., and is dedicated to Lebanon and to Ashraf whose family lies awake at night listening for the bombs while world leaders grow fat on their profits built upon the sales of weapons to those who wish to destroy the world. Remember: As Lebanon dies so dies the world.

My apologies for getting political with this week's poetry carnival but as world leaders are too cowardly to say it, we bards are left to spread the word.

Next week's host of the Ringing Of The Bards will be Bob Hazelton of Average Poet (an understatement, to say the least) and is proudly endorsed by Poets101.com and by me.

We've lots of weeks available should you wish to host The Ringing, simply check the schedule and e-mail me at idleblogs (AT) yahoo.com
