Hello!  Welcome to ABC Tales - lovely to have you here.

I like reworkings of fairy tales.  They always lend themselves to reinterpretation and I enjoyed your poem.  I'm no poetry critic either, so I can only offer a personal point of view...

Fascinating, Jean.  I was watching the Proms the other night, Daniel Barenboim conducting a programme of English music, and they played both 'Nimrod' (always reduces me to tears) and 'Pomp and Circumstance'.  The detail in this is wonderful -...

What a lovely story!  Glad that it all worked out in the end.  I love the idea of having that chant as a ring tone.  Currently I have The Beatles' 'Don't Bother Me', which has always seemed appropriate, but you've given me something to think...

I loved that last line.  Sometimes there is simply no other way to put it! 

I really like the rhythm of your writing - I see that you're a lyricist and the musicality definitely comes through.

Posted on Sat, 03 Jun 2017

This is a lovely piece.  We have been reminded recently of how powerful poetry can be at times of national grief.  I like the way this reads as a declaration of (all kinds of) faith, a credo for getting through terrible times.  Really touches the...
