    Got to be with you on this one, when I met my partner we had nothing at all in common,
    and we still don't, and we love it. We've been together years and we still never agree
    with each other, but it works. a great poem. (Report) Reply

    Wow Eric, you have certainly written a winner here; isn't this the truth, the IT of life! ? Yes!
    If we could all get and embrace IT, how much more joyous, real, breathtaking and alive our lives would become. 10-plus. (Report) Reply

'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
