Well, I filled in all the blanks. What do you think? I tried to stay true to what you had with a few minor adjustments.

S ilver magic on a screen...
I sn't it a lovely scene?...
L aughter and hijinks without end...
E scape into a nicer world and then...
N everending youth, men who are gallant...
T rue love and surprising talent

P retty maids, and silly girls...
H opping madmen, the mustache curls...
O pening into a forgotten world...
T imes and a places, such a dreamworld...
O asis in the midst of turmoil...
P rimitive fragments of reality & evil to foil...
L iving connection to the past...
A nd what's left forever to last...
Y es, it spells SilentPhotoplay.
.....Won't you come in here to stay?

WOW!! That is marvelous! I really like the imagery you added, and also the way it captures the world of silent films so completely.

You really have some skill at this. I did the right thing by giving my bits and pieces to a pro. It's too bad this can't be published somewhere. If it were the olden days, it would have been a natural for one of the magazines, wouldn't it?

So true! Well, I'll publish it on my blog. At least that's something! 😃
Thank you. I like writing :)
