    Awesome narration with stunning style, the houses collapsed, not even worth
    the human act of breaking in,
    fields will have taken over.

    Excellent the beauty of expressing eternity with modern thoughts of accepting and rejection. Oft quoted so many lines are in procession....really enjoyed its poetic essence. Thanks to PH. (Report) Reply

    Her wording of this poem makes me feel as if I'm traveling along with the poet on this trip! So vividly descriptive! (Report) Reply

    She really brings out how evocative an abandonded house is, how there's a life that's been abandoned too. The closing stanza is a perfect ending. (Report) Reply
