Mike - this is a fine effort - you must have spent a lot of time putting this together so well.  I truly enjoyed every line.  You are all aces, my friend.  This is a wonderful poem.

What a remarkable way to invite everyone in to the "other world" of knowledge...and to not doubt what someone might say...all the way.  Too many people are "blessed" with more than the average person can know...thank you for bringing this to the forefront.

This is outstanding. I'm familiar with that song. It always will cause a stirring in me much the way this poem did. Makes me stop and think about the what ifs and if we would have come as far as we have if things had turned out differently.

Thank you!

Balladeer,

   I remember reading this before, as a repost in a later forum. It still gives me chills. Your writing is amazing.

Hugs,
Tara
