The RetroLounge Daily Poem Thread ARCHIVE
For those of you interested in going back and rereading any of the poems that I've posted, I put together an archive. It will also help me not post duplicates, as you can see that I have a couple of times. I will try to keep it updated and repost it each month.

Thanks for participating in these threads, you've made what started as an exercise in pain into a daily joy for me and have given me a place in the lounge to call my own.

Thank you...

RL

3. Thank you, my dear RetroLounge......
For this archive.....

I have bookmarked many of these poems, but it's impossible to know which ones are which.....

But your archive is perfect, since it lists the titles of the poems!

Much easier to find!
