What a delight to read this

Posted on Thu, 29 Aug 2013

What a delight to read this poem, showing that there are people out there that care a lot about nature and doing something positive...which is what I liked about this poem Rhiannon.

Always gives me hope when people give back to nature....

This is a gorgous flower that you've done justice to in your poem.

I like the line:- Milk-maids wave in a soggy vale. Just had this image of the flowers waving in the breeze. Very much enjoyed reading Rhiannon.

I was interested to read this

Posted on Tue, 08 Nov 2022

I was interested to read this piece. Having lived all my life up until joining abc tales, I had no idea about quotation marks. Always just bluffing my way through school and college and work left me unsure. Even now I'm not absolutely confident...

Who indeed could walk out on

Posted on Sun, 06 Nov 2022

Who indeed could walk out on such a great family? I ask myself. It's sad to think that situations like this do happen in real life. I really hope they manage to stay together, but money is the biggest issue here, and time is of the essence....
