I am really sorry I missed this one - it was by perchance that I ran across this one, just as my friend was asking me to show her some poems, and I found this not too far from one of my poems. I am sorry, I repeat, sorry that I missed this poem. It is the first time that someone has written a poem because I inspired him/her, but this is better than I expected to receive as a first inspiration from someone! I am leaving netpoets, and tonight is my final night - I am checking the announcements tomorrow for what the others said anyway, just to be fair and give my last thanks.
Who cares if my name's spelled wrong! I have seen many others do that. It is spelled A-R-T-U-R in the book I am reading, but he's a king too, similar to the Arthur of Camelot.
This is a very eloquent piece for your style of writing, to which I confess I really like, and I miss being a child where fairy tales seemed a reality. This is the magic of Christmas, since Santa has miraculously made many kids smile (anyway!).
I hope this one doesn't escape you, the way it escaped me.
Sweet dreams to you
Hope to hear from you again in a month or two!
