Hi Roger....I was so happy to see you here........and with my very favorite poem of all time  "Dear John"
My poem, "Daughter of my Soul" started out to be free verse, and the rhymes just got in there by accident...which is probably why you had trouble with them.
I call myself "Madame Chipmunk" because David's pet name for me is "chipmunk" and I was just going to use that but then no one would know whether I was male of female, so I put the "Madame" in front of it because I don't know of any men who call themselves "Madame"...Do You?
My license plate even says CHIPMNK...we can only have 7 characters on it in Michigan.
Anyway....its great to see you here

This is lovely... I'm so glad you feel that way about your daughter-in-law. It seems in some families there is a lot of tension and problems with in-laws, but obviously not with yours! Welcome to Passions, and hope to see more from you!

Lyra,

Yup, I finally made it over from Moontown  .  I've been browsing through and liking what I see.  I lost interest in my poetry for awhile.  I just got busy, and life just kind of pulled me along like some kind of toy.  But after reading your work, I realize how much I miss it.  Thanks for sending that e-mail out and directing me here.  Wonderful work ... I'm glad to see that love lives in more than just blood.  See you around!  I look forward to posting here!

Thanks so much for the warm welcome, Bec.
This was written for a daughter in law who is the widow of my son who died last year at age 30.  She just remarried and we are still very close.
I'm glad you enjoyed the poem

Welcome Chelle...this is the first time I have welcomed someone here...wow!

This is a very nice site...I think you will really enjoy it here....it is just too bad about MTC, isn't it?
But we will have most of the family over here, sooner or later.  If you know of anyone from MTC who will like this site, please forward them a copy of my email.
Again...thanks for coming here...and enjoy
yourself
