Word Counter Tool - Get The Word Count Of A Given Text

Word Counter Tool - Get The Word Count Of A Given Text

A poem by G. David Schwarz

David writes: I am currently retired, 
and besides writing, I am  delivering Meals On Wheels  
in my community.  

I've Never Seen A Martian 
 G David Schwartz 

I've never seen a martian
But I've heard about 'um
They say that they have some religion 
That's all I know about them.

Invitation from WORD WEAVERS for new members - SEQUIM

We have traditionally met at noon for lunch and socializing before beginning to share our writing at 1:00 p.m. We try to finish by 3:00 p.m.  Readings are limited to about 2500 words maximum in order to give everyone a chance.  Likewise, we limit the number of readers to ten in any one meeting, though others are welcome to come as guests or non-reading members for a particular session. Meeting days have varied, but are now the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month (exceptions for holidays).  

Our current venue is The Family Dining Room at The Lodge.  The fixed price lunch for non-residents is $11.40.  The menu is varied and the food is good.

All topics and genres are open within the limits of good taste.  (A former member defined "good taste" as anything you would not mind letting your 18-year-old granddaughter read knowing you wrote it!)  Pieces longer than 2500 words should be broken up and a brief synopsis provided at the beginning of second and later segments.

The latest post of Donal Mahoney poem

People Who Live Above Stores

It's two in the morning 
and people who live above stores
have sprung from their beds
this cold winter night.
They're leaning out of their windows
and bellowing into the street

at the deaf baker who launched the alarm
in the Rogers Park Donut Shoppe.
It's been ringing for hours 
and the police haven't come.
Not even the firemen.
The donuts will never get done

and it appears now that 
people who live above stores
will remain in a rage
leaning out of their windows
waving cigarettes like strobes
and bellowing the rest of the night.
