A very well woven piece, with lots of imagery which is great. Life is full of interesting bits and pieces to write about, and you have the ability to find it. Well done. Love and hugs Ernestine XXX

Clever! Really like the imagery. That is the one thing i dislike about Oxford, I used to live in Durban so it was sunny all the time, but i came hear and your seasons are so wet and cold! Half a mind to go back! Great poem, love effie
