How DO you do this? Man, with all that talent there has to be a book somewhere of your collective works.

There is not much I can say that hasn't been already said but I will tell you that I have read this one quite a few times and each time it is just as enjoyable as the last.  I also find that each time I read it there is something new that sticks out in my mind.  I bow to the master of story telling and proudly cast my vote for this one.  Well done sir as all your writings are.

If I didn't vote for this

Your godly writing sets me at bliss,
For your talent I would die!

Never stop writing such AWSOME writes!
Thanks sooooo much for sharing!

wait a minute... haven't I voted for this yet??

Well, third submission and about three pages long, so my vote will only be nominal, most likely... still, I have to let you know that I love this one.  I read it at my girlfriend's place, and read it aloud to her... she was really impressed too.  Great work, 'Deer.

Thank you, Bridgette

Parasite, I think one of the greatest compliments a poet can receive is to have someone read his work to a third party...I thank you, sir..

What a gifted and polished story-teller you are sir.  I thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful tale of reunion and love, laughter and hope.

A tale of the tallest measure!

Your writing style and the way you told this story in the tone and feel of a ballad held my attention all the way. Certainly richly deserves a place in the anthology. Have you ever read any of the work of Australian "Bush Balladists" such as "Banjo" Patterson (of *Walzing Matilda* fame), Henry Lawson and John O'Brien (*Around The Boree Log*)? I think you would enjoy them. Anyway, thanks for this extremely well-written piece.

CAVECANEM...thanks for the kind words. Ole Balladeer thanks you!!!

pjtalty...I have the greatest respect for the AUstralian bush poets from Banjo Paterson to Gordon, Lawson, O'Brien and Olgivie, among others. They had a flair of tale-telling and mixing in the full flavor of their thoughts in every word. I think my favorite of Banjo's would be The Man from Snowy River and the Geebunk Polo Club. To be even mentioned in the same breath with these giants of the written word is a huge compliment...I thank you.

I bet those bush balladists talked faster than you though, but I wonder if they could recite their long stories in rhyme from memory?  You amazed me beyong belief and I haven't quit telling people about that you realize?

Michael, I really love it when you tell stories like this.  You have such a way of relating history in a way that it touches the present very poigantly.  The foibles of life come through this in such a sad way.  Some thing throughout the ages don't change much:  The magnetism between men and women, mistakes and secrets, a father's love for his daughter, and regrets.   This is a wonderful ballad.

Karen
