What a great and powerful message you have given with this thoughtful and emotive poem. I love it... not sure if the kind of love you are looking for is here, but I hope for you it is. Kind regards, Marijke 15-Mar-2021
I have read some very thought provoking poems on this site tonight, and this one is certainly one of them. Well put. Well structured and thought out words, put together so as to make the reader think about its message. Thanks for sharing and warmest regards, Marijke :o) 19-Nov-2020
Ah, yes, that demon drink. I believe it can cause quite some misfortunes when imbibed in large quantities. Loved this poem, it told a whole story and although on a serious subject, was cheeky and fun. Thanks for sharing and warmest regards, Marijke :o) xxxx 25-Mar-2017
Hi Fiona. No, "doubts" is the word I want there. Someone else suggested that, too, but I have no doubts at all that he was a good man and nobody else would either. It was plan to see. If a person were to say, "no doubt he was a good man" implies there IS a doubt--it's "iffy." No "ifs" with my father. Thank you for your nice review. Marilyn
What a wonderful tribute to your father, with this well written and well structured Rime Couee poem. Just one small observation:
this good boy turned good man, no doubts. (should that be doubt? not 'doubts'?

Lovely descriptive 2-4-2 poem, which paints a picture in the mind of the reader, Sandra. Loved listening to Moving Autumn, just beautiful. Thanks for sharing and warmest regards, Marijke :o) xxx 24-Mar-2017
You know we could have a contest to prove which of us is the worst. I have all the confidence that I will come out on top in this one. I think I will create a contest just to find out. This new project will prove to be quite challenging but I am looking forward to giving it a shot.
... and of course, all the luck in the world for this. I can't wait to read chapter one, and contrary to your own belief, I have seen far worse grammar and spelling than on any of your rants I have enjoyed over the years (see... I don't think that last sentence of mine was grammatically correct!). I enjoyed reading this, had a laugh or two along the way, and as I said, am looking forward to chapter one, bring it on!

I didn't mean that I realised the implications at 4 years of age. At the time, it was just two boys playing. It was recalling the incident many, many years later that made me think how silly it seems to waste time on the things we so often concern ourselves with. Thanks for the lovely review :) Craig
A heart-rending and yet uplifting I remember story. So much to learn at such a young age, and some very empathetic advice for the readers. Great read, well written, I wish you well in the contest. Warmest regards, Marijke :o) 23-Mar-2017
