Jim, you've read mine on a similar theme, so you know just how this would affect me. Childhood surroundings get woven into the heart and clearly Iowa is deeply woven into yours. It shows very clearly from beginning to end of this love poem. A lot of change must be a challenge to cope with. There are some things we want to stay they same and our place of origin is probably near the top of the list. I enjoyed this jim.
