    Wonderful expression of a new poet - you've found their innocence through your words.
    Totally poetical! I love it! Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply

    Linda,

    This is such a tender encouragement to new poets, many of which exist on this site. It is tikkun olam to support the word generation that follows. I loved the poem. I give it a 10.

    How did Pastan ever get a Pulitzer writing this stuff? Sorry, this is trite poetry. But again, she lives in Maryland, as I do, so I wish her well. (Report) Reply

    I have been 'picking flowers' since I discovered PH, and your work is one of them.
    How wonderful it is to make great new poetic friends who boost your ego AND help you become better at the same time. Love your work, and look forward to more. (Report) Reply

    Linda, you are the wildflower in the woods that I have discovered. I love poems about poets...and have written many of them. This one is absolutely perfect and lovely to read again and again.

    This is a remarcable poem. I loved every line and understood your centiments entirely. You are so right about the way we feel when we discover or stumble on a new poet that we can relate to. Well, Linda I have found myself a new flower today haven't I?

    Will read more of your work now.

    Kind regards
