I have given this poem 5 Stars (5*****) and I do hope that it works, since before we did that with POINTS,10 points and since short time, the editor has renewed the Home Page of PH and it shows a beautiful coloured (more colours than before) sight/ Home Page. Best wishes from The Netherlands, a cutest small country but as beautiful as Seattle. I can tell you, because I have been in Seattle.
