Wow!  Is one of the words I would use to describe what I've just read.

An entoxicating,  powerful piece,  that developed and grew stronger as I read.

Great work...and I really mean that.

I loved everything about this

Posted on Thu, 26 Jan 2017

I loved everything about this poem, especially the last three stanzas. Very romantic and dreamy, telling of love only two people have shared and recalled.

Mastered beautifully.

Posted on Mon, 16 Jan 2017

As always Rhiannon I enjoyed your poem which reminded me a lot of the many walks we have here in Wiltshire. That sprinkling of snow didn't really come to much here either, by the afternoon it was all gone.

Thank you for sharing your stroll...
