    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.

Maiden by door

Sparrow to wing

Sunlight on stone

Straw goes to home

Spring!
