Violets - Poem by Pete Crowther

When I was a child
My mother took me
To look for violets.
They grew in a secret place
On the edge of a wood.
Their petals were as blue
As my mother’s eyes.
This was long ago.

    Actually Mac, i think the line it was long ago adds beauty to the poem. (Report) Reply

    I love it, but I don't think the last line adds anything-it's evident that it must have been long ago. Why not just dropp it? (Report) Reply
