Poet Laureate 1. A poet appointed for life by a British monarch (king, queen, etc.) as a member of the royal household and formerly expected to write poems celebrating occasions of national importance and honoring the royal family. 2. A poet appointed to a similar honorary position or honored for artistic excellence. 3. A poet acclaimed as the most excellent or most representative of a locality or group.
[Derivation of laureate: Latin: laurus: a wreath/branch of laurel (a laurel is a small tree with scented leaves and black berries) given (and worn) as a mark of honor in ancient times to poets, heroes, and victors in athletic contests.]
The laurel wreath represents victory. Used throughout history to crown poets, artists, champions and conquerors. It not only represents the physical victory but the series of inner victories achieved by the individual, and the clarification and purification of his inner aims and purposes which lead to the outward victory..." So we now have: Darren the Poet Laureate!
Darren: I do not know who you are, or where your from, but your Introduction Poem really touched my heart. I feel I have a soul mate in you. Thanks for those beautiful words and I hope your tomorrow is filled with as much sunshine as you have put in mine! - Lydia
I love the poem Falling In Love With A Friend I can relate to it to every detail! That is the greatest poem. Every time I read it I just cry! Thank you for this great poem and all the other great poems! - Ashley
I just wanted to let you know that your poem Close Friends is wonderful. It reminds me of my very best friend Amy and how we were separated by a move that I had made. We promised that we would never be separated so she is planning to move by me soon. Thanks for that little reminder of a poem on how close we really are! - Keella
I must say, the poem Free-Basing is the most powerful and haunting piece of Poetry I've ever read in my life. Tears came to my eyes when I read it—sad, weeping tears for all the poor souls who are hopelessly addicted to smoking the cocaine rocks. I have driven through their neighborhoods and have seen first hand, through my car windows, their despair. And it seems that whoever wrote this poem is just as sensitive and just as compassionate as I hope to be. Thank You and God Bless. - Steven
That is great Poetry! I'm a young writer at the age of 12. I think the poem entitled Falling In Love With A Friend is really good! I just had to say that! - Later, Jake
You have great organizational skills. Easy to surf through all the pages! Nice Site. I was surfing around and came across this site by accident, and found your Poetry to be extremely enlightening. Thanks for the Pleasure! - Shadow Keeper
This is an outstanding expression of ones feelings, which are very touching and very emotionally concentrated. I can absolutely relate to every single line, except to where he actually told his friend his true desire. I know that's what lies ahead for me in this road to nowhere. Fantastic, because I know I am not the only one who can really relate, and I know what the author was feeling. Awesome! - Brandon
So glad I found your sight. Have written Poetry in the past - vision problems, which have recently been corrected, made it difficult to read - or do any of the things I enjoyed. Now, that the vision is back - I've been dealing with a very personal loss that I suppose I had put on a back burner - because I couldn't handle it then. Now, I feel the muses rising again. Looking forward to repairing my shattered soul by baring it with Poetry again. Thanks for the pieces of encouragement I found at your sight! - Gloria
Your site is so beautiful and it really lifted me up when I was so very let down. Truly this is heaven and I am always glad to be here! - Jane

You have some great sound effects for every Poem. You even have backgrounds and sound effects that fits exactly what the poem is feeling or something like that. I like how you set the poems to background music and stuff like that. - Sweetshine
The poem Falling In Love With A Friend really touched me. Not only because I have been through a similar experience, but also because the poem flowed so well to me. One thing I always try to remember is "The amount that you have been hurt, you can be loved and love again tenfold." Thanks again for your inspirational writing! - Marybeth
Dear Darren, I can't thank you enough for the beautiful write-up you gave me on your really cool website. What a joy to read all the nice things you wrote about me. You are truly a good friend, and I especially want to thank you for your support at the songwriting contest. Friends like you truly make me feel like a "Winner." Again, thanks for all your friendship and support! - Amy
I just took a cruise into your website and wanted you to know that I never realized how talented and truly gifted you really are, until I glimpsed at your work! I also want you to know that after viewing for myself what you really are capable of doing and creating, that I realize how blessed and lucky I am to have a friend like you in my life! - You are so sensitive, emotional and spiritual, that I could actually feel your magical qualities coming out of your Poetry, which of course is a reflection of you, your world, and how you see life and others! Keep Up The Great Work! Wishing you Love and Light now and always! - Annette
