This is easy to read, classy

Posted on Wed, 17 Jan 2024

I really like this, Rhiannon.

I really like this, Rhiannon. It's easy to forget that farmers are up and out in all weathers, at all times helping nature along. Your words are soft and powerful here, much like the lamplight.

Your poem is very cleansing,

Posted on Wed, 13 Dec 2023
