    As usual, even after all these years, a triumph of words and mental pictures. You're the best ever! (Report)Reply

    A loving and moving birthday tribute from mother to son. Not much an outsider can add except to say how damned well written it is. Word clearly run in the family. jim xx (Report)Reply

    This poem warms my mother heart; too, it reminds me of a childhood love of words. Keppel is clearly a gifted soul in the way of words, but also with the beauty of a mother who celebrates him! Happy Birthday, Keppel! ! ! ! ! Love, Esther : ] (Report)Reply

    Very nice, Alison. The poem, although written for Keppel, has universal appeal. I am sure your son is just as proud of you as you are of him! (Report)Reply
