Elvira, I'm putting this one back at the top. You're the one who brings up all the other ones and no one replied to this. I liked the poem since I know how hard it is to want someone who doesn't want you back. You did a good job!

I wish I hadn't missed this one, this is within my interest range (medieval and fantasy). I really like your usage of countenance. A profound meaning.

I like this... you paint a very real picture of love just out of reach. Nice work.

Yanno, at first I thought it was just a story about a servant and some kind of nobility. Then, after some of the women got ahold of it, I realized it was much more than that. Talk about still waters! (well, talk about stagnant waters, too - but please try not to associate hair color with my slowness - lol).

Thank you for the very nice welcome. Over the years I've become accustomed to breaking into" a new board or chat room or whatever. I know it takes time and a lot of patience. So
I'll just save some of my favorite poems (heh heh heh) until people get to know me. I wasted my poem, The Wind, because I forgot the fundamental rule about being "the new guy:" Wait until people see you are funloving and upbeat. Then hit 'em with something a little deeper.

BTW - I've enjoyed your work, and your comments in my own 'lurking' way *g*

There is one thing for sure we all pray that our "Imortal beloved" is looking for us too! As always elvira, I always enjoy reading your words. Your talents is endless!
