    I could see, as well as a weight I could feel
    in my mouth. So now, even as I write this
    and think of you at home, Goodbye. a very good poem. tony(Report)Reply

    I repeated whole sections I'd learned by heart,
    spelling each word in my head to make a picture
    I could see, as well as a weight I could feel
    in my mouth. So now, even as I write this
    and think of you at home, Goodbye.........................A great poem from a Great Poetess. I love all your poems that are published here,(Report)Reply

    Pathetic condition of one who had left home in search of job and was unable to find one has been adroitly described in the letter to home. The dejection expressed is really touching. Superb diction, Enjoyed reading. Thanks for sharing.10 points.(Report)Reply
