To me, poetry is a wonderful way to bring people together, evoke emotions and similar memories. Thank you for your kind reply.

~ May the memories of your halcyon days be forever with you--and may you make many more!

Warm hugs,

You brought back childhood memories and conjured up childhood thoughts.
Very warm and endearing poem

Liz ~

When I read a reply like yours, it makes writing poetry even more gratifying to me.

I think it is wonderful that the little girl in you, still comes out to play. Would she care to join the little girl in me for a day of play?

~ May you never lose sight of that joyful young spirit that dwells within you...

Warm hugs on this beautiful winter's morning...

What a sweet and thoughtful reply! I truly appreciate your kindness!
I love it when my poetry can stir up good emotions in the reader.
We are so fortunate to have had such wonderful memories of visiting our grandma's house...maybe, just maybe, you are right about our having the same one...

~ May your tomorrows have halcyon memories of your todays...

You evoked wonderful memories of playing at my grammie's old house. It was one of my favorite things to do when I was little. She had a hope chest filled with tutu's and ballerina slippers from her own childhood. I would dress up and dance around the upstairs for hours. Sometimes she would play the piano as an accompaniment for me.  There is something so special about little girls and their grandmother's.

This is one of your absolutely most brilliant poems and I curtsy graciously to you.

Huggles, Marti

We really are soul sisters! I can just picture you twirling around in carefree abandon as I once did at my grandma's home.

Thank you, Dear Sweet One!--and yes, you may join me anytime in front of my grandma's magic mirror.

Sunshine ~

Your generous response spurred me to go back and read all of the replies again (I am very pleasantly surprised at how many of them there are!), and they made me smile as well!
I got such a sense of comraderie and a true feeling of family--a sharednostalgia...and an appreciation of our experiences by those who may not have had them.  

~ Whenever you gaze into a mirror--know that there is magic in its reflective depths...

Have a radiant day, Dear Sun,

Why thank you for saying so!--and so was your reply!

M ~

I am pleased that you read and replied to this poem which is one of my personal favorites mainly because of its sentimental value to me.
I am saving all of the replies to this poem and I am glad that you are now among the repliers! Thank you!

~ May your memories keep you warm whenever the sun goes on vacation!

Have a wonderful evening!
