    Well developed poem! It's such a pleasure sometimes to read formal / structured poetry with its reliable cadence and lovely language. Returning to nature - away from the metropolitan and/or suburban life - isn't always as ideal as the poet suggests, but it definitely has its benefits. (Report) Reply

    This is beautiful. As a mother pleading her straying children back under her wing. Love it. (Report) Reply
