One of the satisfactions of being an administrator for this website is the opportunity to bestow honors for exceptional achievement. I hereby designate Gregory Garceau the Poet Laureate for Cycle365. You may not be aware of the impressive body of work he’s been contributing to over on CycleBlaze, but the Awards Committee felt that his latest composition in response to the featured photo merits special recognition:
Ornithologists are a little dweeby
When they make puns about a phoebe
It can’t help it was born
With a beak like a thorn
(No charge for this poem–it’s a freebie.)
Mr. Garceau isn’t the only noteworthy poet to grace CycleBlaze with their inspirations. Jen Grumby (partner of our own Mr. Grumby) is a most prolific limericist; and if memory serves correctly, Suzanne has been known to submit an occasional haiku in the past. I’ve started collecting these in the CycleBlaze Poet’s Corner. It’s an open forum, so feel free to submit your own contributions if your muse inspires you.
