    hey readers, I KNOW who this poem was written FOR. ruthie, my friend, told ME. so there! see if you can guess who.
    i like it. some may think born again refers to a religious experience, but i don't think this can be said, unless one interprets religious loosely. i liked the change from before all that - - - to just like that.
    yikes! cat scratch. ouch. i recall when my little girl got a scratch under her eye from our doggy. oops! she was walking by then (i mean the child, not the dog; well, the dog was walking by then also) .
    thanks, ruth, for sharing. :) bri (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
and the sheds were all cut out;
