Internet Poet Writes 1,000th Poem

Popular Internet poet, Allen Jesson, celebrates writing his 1,000th poem. Allen's site, A Gift of Poetry is a top 50,000 web-site and attracts over 10,000 visitors per day.

(PRWEB) July 6, 2004 - Essex, England - If you've ever struggled to express your emotions then help is at hand. Popular Internet poet Allen Jesson will write his 1,000th poem in July 2004. His web-site, A Gift of Poetry, offers a unique service where Allen writes poetry for special occasions such as weddings, birthdays and anniversaries.

"I feel privileged to play a part in my customer's special moments. I have written poems from unborn children through to wedding vows and funeral speeches, so I literally cover the span of life (and beyond). Sadly, I am also writing a lot for the soldiers currently stationed in Iraq. It's especially difficult for some of them as they are away from home for their first anniversaries. "A Soldier's Fortune" was also written for one poor chap who's not coming home."

One of the things that makes the site so special (and so popular) is that many customers give Allen permission to share the details of their requests. Some of these are quite revealing.

Allen has written for "brickies, beauty queens and billionaires" and 90% of his customers come from the USA, although the UK is now starting to catch on.

Life's sadder events are also included and there are many moving examples on this popular site. A Gift of Poetry, started by Allen in 1998 has risen to become the No.1 web-site in the world for "Web Published Poetry". Attracting over 10,000 visitors per day and one of the top 50,000 web-sites in the world, Allen is amazed by his success.

"To be honest, when I started this journey, I had no idea where it would end up. It has taken an enormous amount of effort to get here and I have a feeling the real work is just about to begin."

"It's quite hard to believe but every one of the 1,000 poems has had something different to say. I guess it's because everybody is unique and has their own special story to tell. Thankfully I don't suffer from "writer's block" so I think I've still got a few more in me yet."

Allen shares many customer testimonials on the site, this is a typical example (from a bride to be who wanted to ask her mother to escort her down the aisle):

"I can't believe that you were able to express in one poem what I have been trying to express for the last four years."

Allen sums this up: "Poetry is great way to express your feelings. If you need to make a speech or tell someone of your love, poetry can be a very effective medium."
