Some Originals

by TY

“An original idea. That can't be too hard. The library must be full of them.”

Tabatha, I don't have time this am to read more, but I loved Poetry City. Since I haven't known you long enough to have seen that poem, it was a wonderful surprise this morning. Delightful the way you included all the main characters! I'll return tonight!

I didn't make it last night-so much going on, but wanted to say how much I also like Eyesight. My granddaughter and I look for faces & at three, she is beginning to 'get it'. Thanks, Tabatha.

Thank you, Linda :-) Sounds like your granddaughter is a fun person to imagine with.

Wonderful selection of poetry, Tab.

There were excellent poems there for everyone in a wide variety of styles.

I can tell you took "Poetry City" to heart. :-)
