This is very moving Severn - I am quite touched by it. You have some beautiful lines in there! - You have a wonderfully caring heart, and it shows. Any ex-pat (of whatever age,) in some corner of a foreign field, would feel closer to home in the warmth of your comforting words.
Severn A delicate and beautifully structured art work. You have a precision and manner that, I'm sure, would move any one so honoured to tears. Your London Boy must, I'm certain, consider himself to be blessed indeed. Would that we all could use our language thus.
You do have the words at the tip of your pen to express what's in your heart, and that is one of the reasons your poetry is so exquisite. The other reason is that you've got poet genes. A natural talent. I am every time amazed and I think your London friend is very fortunate to have someone that he can trust Liz
Beautifully done, Severn....words like silk that flow like wine. You are such a wonderful poet! I need a book of your poetry, and Rainbow Girl's fireplace, my Bocelli CD's, a nice soft blanket, candles and a bottle of champagne and I'd be all set!

Truly Kamla your heart overflows with love and your poetry expresses it better than a hug ever could - I'm sure these words (so wonderful, i'm so jealous!) will comfort him and to know that he can trust in you - i'd definitely vouch for your trustworthiness!!! If i were this page, i'd be so honoured to have been graced by these words.
