A pocketful of sympathy
Is really rather wonderful
To stop a scratch from stinging

    I have leaned that these are not just words you have thrown away on a piece of paper. They are the stuff that your heart is made of and because of that these are all the more beautiful words that I take and print upon my heart.
    Love to you Allie. (Report) Reply

    What a lovely, inspirational poem. (You misspelled raindropp with 2 'p's'.) This could become a classic, and I'd love permission to post it in my blog (with full credit of course) . Thank you for sharing it. (Report) Reply

    A sweet, welcome write to all those (and who hasn't?) suffered in any way, shape or form! That loving word and smile makes all the difference, every time. Only a darling named Allie could write this poem! ... Love, Esther : ] (Report) Reply

    In these hustling, bustling times there seems to be a shortage of Lindsay's magic Pudding. It takes good people to spread it around. Your terrific work does exactly that. Alison, it's a pleasure to have encountered you and your humane, exceedingly perceptive and eloquent mind. I see your comments here and there, and of course you've left some very generous ones at mine (for which many, many thanks) , and they are always so thoughtful and pertinent - sometimes in the midst of the wayward and downright bizarre (that would be mine from time to time) . They help to steady the ship. Thank you, jim. (And a belated happy birthday. Read Tara's lines earlier, and squinted at your entertaining and very impressive bio! !) (Report) Reply

    Here's to sympathetic and empathetic friends! Good observation allie...I always say that compassion (and laughter) are the best medicine for whatever ails you.
    All the best in 2007 lady!
    Hugs,

    Lindsay's magic pudding indeed, an archaic but brilliantly sustainable image. You wrenched my sympathy easily. IDC (Report) Reply

And pays us but with earth and dust;
