    Gabriella you are so great! I mean your a wonderful talented writer (in poetry AND songs) and an awesome person! We may just seem to be pen pals but it is because we relate to each others writing so well that I think we have a different kind of bond. You have the most clever and creative mind, I don't know how you do it! You take anything: any teenage heartache, adult situation or regular activity and turn it into a tight string of rhymes and rhythm everyone can enjoy. I absolutely adore your poetry and often come back to read it again and again. You have a different way with words that always seems to display the exact way I'm feeling without exaggerated expression or over complication. No matter how hard we try to keep close our feelings they always seem to drift out through a poem and, well, seems to me like that's the way it should be! I love reading about you because it's clearly your distinct flow and style every time.
    Love ya!
    Your seperated sis,

    You're a very good writter, Gabriella. You write from life and things that happen everyday. Your writing is unique and special because you write for yourself and you don't care what other people think. Keep up the good work. I loo forward to seeing many more great poems from you in the future.
    With Love,

Best Poem of Gabriella Franco

The Touch Of The Master's Hand

’Twas battered and scarred, and the auctioneer
Thought it scarcely worth his while
To waste much time on the old violin,
But he held it up with a smile.
“What am I bidden, good folk? ” he cried,
“Who’ll start the bidding for me?
“A dollar—a dollar—then two, only two—
“Two dollars, and who’ll make it three?
“Going for three”—but no—
From the room far back, a gray-haired man
Came forward and picked up the bow,
Then, wiping the dust from the old violin,
And tightening the loosened strings,
He played a melody pure and sweet
As a caroling angel ...
