Callington, Cornwall, England
Thanks for the replies Terri and Doreen. And no, I don't mind critique at all *8) I even welcome it.
You asked what I thought, so....
I gave that a lot of thought at the time I wrote the poem, and rereading it before posting for the first time. I decided that yes, the repetition was an integral part of the poem. I feel it adds a certainty to each verse, highlighting the question at the end of the fourth. So... that's why it's still there *8)
Thanks, also, for the compliments. It's nice to know that my words are giving others pleasure.
I believe in fairy tales but then I'm just a silly romantic, what do I know?
