How could I have missed this one before now? This has to be one of the most beautiful and touching poems I can remember ever. I was really getting into the story until she took the letter to her father. I wondered how she could do that. Then the twist at the end brought a real tear.

Absolutely wonderful dear.

A lovely tale told in lyrical language...a more than worthy addition to the book.
