...where Pen is mightier than the sword...
Jinksy- A sad reflection written beautifully... I love the chorus!
That last stanza is a killer. The tone throughout the poem is so wise and persuasive... this is someone who knows the truth and is not afraid to put it out there. Wonderful example of rondeau.
Beautifully written. Great flow. And! how true!
Sounds to close to the story of Ada and I for comfort! :)
Sorry - TOO close, of course I meant to type..
This is lovely - it should be set to music.
I can see you reading this aloud from a book as you wander in a flower-strewn clifftop garden on a summer's morning.
