    Hi Bill...read your poem 'Poetry As Prayer'...your words tell this so well...you are right...in so many ways writing poetry is so very solitude...but...rewarding...

Best Poem of Bill Grace

'It Takes A Village To Raise A Child'

My red neck friends disdain her
Or hold her in open contempt
But she has given us a truth in a land of cities
It takes a village to raise a child.
So who were: Daisy and Pappy Millet? Don and Esther Urquhart? Ken Gardner and Jean Thompson? Sphen and Danny Loman? Jo Strain, George VanClef and Madeline Maurie?
Who were these people and others who raised me?
(The names that are not enshrined here)
You do not have to even know all their stories
To know their truth
It takes a village or at the very least
A church of great heart to help raise a child.

Sea World 4th Of July*

This 4th the French may not be popular
This nation that helped to sanctify the 4th
Yet our crowd feels their influence
In sound and sight spectacular
Where even sea creatures do the bidding to delight.

If those rough hewn men could see their seed
With two centuries plus of growth
They too would respond with even greater shock and awe
