Arriving here by Pony Espress:

This is an Ode to the Mentors & Guides,
The reason we choose to abide.
Critiques, comments, handy tips,
Urging us on with gentle whips,
Encouraged to show our art with pride.

They give us freely of personal time,
Encourage production of art that is fine,
Years of knowledge given to us,
Secret gems passed on in trust,
A heartfelt thanks given by this simple rhyme.

To All Others, not titled but in the know,
Gave personal pearls that help us to grow,
Given freely into our care,
Some new, some old & rare,
Thanks for these gifts from novice and pro.

To all Forums where I have been,
And to those I have not yet seen,
Wish your Holiday be bright,
All in your world be right,
That family & friends, a happy team.

Faye (Bushma'am)

Awwww Faye - wonderful words of thanks.

My post as Moderator is my giving back to WC for all that has been shared by others, for all the things I have learned, for all the support I have been given over the past 2 1/2 years - priceless to me.

Acknowledgement and thanks to all replies

Being new, of course I've received the most
Little in return but this simple toast
Beware in a year, I may turn to boast
Instead of kudo, you may all get a roast.
