    Simple observation that brings up an issue that doesn't come out much - about equality in opportunity. Some parents do not believe that girls and boys should have access to the same opportunities-not just in toys but also in sports activities and artistic endeavors. Your pithy poem overwhelmed me with awareness of the the choices that I have seen withheld from so many who have so much talent that only shame should fall on those who have so deprived them.

    you 'live' a little girl there in your lines...the diction and the poem style relate very well to that 'life'...and that's good poetics...10 (Report) Reply

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
