    Her wording of this poem makes me feel as if I'm traveling along with the poet on this trip! So vividly descriptive! (Report) Reply

    She really brings out how evocative an abandonded house is, how there's a life that's been abandoned too. The closing stanza is a perfect ending. (Report) Reply
