Elvis red a lot of books. As well spiritual once as poetic. It wouldn't surprise me if they'd came from Elvis. I love them by the way.

I don't think Elvis ever wrote a poem

he has one commissioned for Lisa

Red West wrote songs for Elvis - who often suggested a line or title - but Red has stated Elvis just didn't have the discipline to sit down and write anything.

I know about that poem from Lisa yes. But even if they aren't Elvis, I still like them.

Billy Smith tells about this at EIN. http://www.elvisinfonet.com/interview_billysmith_part1.html

EIN: Your relationship with Elvis is probably best symbolised by 'The Pledge'. How did it come about?

Billy: The pledge came about because we had an incident as kids and were never to talk about it. We promised each other. Later on Elvis told someone and it hurt me a lot, and he knew it. He decided to prove to me that it would never happen again, and that's how the pledge came about. Now it was a known fact among the guys that Elvis couldn't keep a secret, but if it was really important, he did. He never betrayed me again. Nor I him.
I don't know where it came from or if Elvis just made it up. But he knew it from memory, and we went over it several times so I could memorize it. Afterwards we both cried like crazy and I'll remember it as long as I live.
The first two verses went like this . .
"It's just a simple word, you see,
To get inside you need no key.
For we who know, know it well,
And you who don't can never tell.
As I place my hand upon your heart,
And you place yours on mine.
From this day forward, our minds, our souls,
Our hearts will intertwine."
(EIN Note – Billy’s full story about ‘The Pledge’ is also featured in the book ‘Elvis & the Memphis Mafia’)

So where can I get the poems Elvis wrote... if they are edited in a book?
I found a great books with Marilyn Monroe poems and I know for sure Elvis did great by writing.

I'm glad you liked my video.:) I think Elvis was a very talented person. And he wrote some great poems. This one dedicated his cousin Billy Smith.

You can't, because Elvis didn't write poems.

I also know that Elvis did Write Many Poems, but I don't remember reading this one. It is Very Beautiful!

Care to elaborate about these many poems? It's news to me.
