Girlie! Girlie, girlie...You are amazing! This poem is heartbreaking and wistful, and just simply wonderful (of course, you wrote it!). I love your formatting, it lends so much to this piece...makes for a perfect read a'loud. Keep it up, my friend!
May I never be too busy to help another's load, Then I'll be drinking from the saucer 'cause my cup has overflowed.
Another intricate navigation around the poles of time and memory, love and dissapointment. Any criticism I might have of the particulars is silenced by the total effect. A wonderfully evocative piece. Thank you. R.T
