Hi Rachel,

I did once visit the street where...

Is'nt the makeup of the human a wonderful creation? It's only when we really think about it...as in your poem, that we realize just how incredible it really is.

Hi onemorething,

I've read this poem many times. It conjured up a picture of someone considering all the men she'd ever known in her life and reflecting on memories of being let down so many times. There's a sadness to reading it, and yet...

Posted on Tue, 08 Oct 2019

I just love that first stanza and the comfort of making and eating homemade soup. Did you know that potatoes in soup are brilliant for the immune system? 

Anyway I found this poem very tasty.
