Hopefully you have noticed the fairly new addition to our op. ed. page, our ''Local Poets'' corner. Although we have been publishing poems submitted to the Great Neck Record by local poets for quite some time now, recently our talented page designer Lucia D'Onofrio began grouping the poems together in an attractive box called, most aptly, ''Local Poets.'' And the response has been a joy!
Readers call to say how much they enjoy these little snippets, how lovely it is to recognize some local talent. And more and more readers-turned-poets are sending in their pieces.
Now, none of us claims to be the next Robert Frost; but we are really delighted with the poems we have been receiving. And we are happy to share the fun with all of our readers.
Thank you to all of our local poets who have decided to share their talents with the community. Thank you to our very pleased readers who have called to say they are enjoying the poems.
We really do believe that our little bit of poetry has added a charming touch to the Record.
