Nan, Yes, hers was just one story. I had a boy in my class who got on the very last plane out of Saigon, and I asked how he had managed to get on that plane. He said there were thousands of people surrounding the plane, pushing and cramming. So his father had the children climb up on top of the crowd, walking on peoples heads and shoulders til they got to the plane. They all made it safely onto the plane.
Thanks, Nan, for the comments
Hoot, I had tears in my eyes when I read your comments. I wrote this as I do all my poems, very quickly, the first thing that comes out. This was written as fast as I can type. But your explanation of the difference
between prose and free verse was excellent, and so having read that, I felt no need to describe the girl at all. Thank you for your help and thank you for your lovely comments.
