Sitting in Michael's Lap
Nan ... I noticed when I found this site (was it only a few weeks ago?!) that you had lots of good advice about the poetry of others but not many postings of your own ... in fact I didn't see any until your "Drive Thru" one (forgive me if I overlooked any)... but now, after reading this, I have to say it was well worth the wait! You did an excellent job with a difficult format, and your diction is nothing short of astounding ... I even had to break out the dictionary (I love it when I have to do that!).
I am heartily impressed ... I humbly ask that you give me advice on my future postings, if this is what I might strive for!
"Nunc lento sonitu dicunt, morierus"
(Now as I hear this bell tolling softly for another, it says to me, "Thou must die.")
