      Thanks, Brenda. I tried a different rhyme scheme and syllable count with this one and I wasn't sure if it worked.

    I say it a lot, but I’m really not a fan of rhyming couplets, but your control and choice in your vocabulary is really masterful. Polished and free flowing in beauty as always.

      Thanks, Daniel. I actually agree with you and I don't often write in couplets as it isn't easy to do without sounding forced so I always approach with caution! Take care.

    Somehow rhyming couplets suit certain pieces. Your poem is more than a pleasure; it a testament to your skill. I really do like your a,a,b,a - c,c,d,c - e,e,f,e - g,g,h,g and a,a,i, a
    Well done, Ben

    I simply love this Ben I wish I could share in your optimism though.

    The snow drops still bloom in my garden and I keep thinking back to last year, when all was fine until the beast landed. (Think it was early March).

    Then again I do live up north so we are normally a season behind you southerners anyway lol

    Hoping your poem brings as much sunshine in the real world as it does here

      Thanks, Craig. Actually, I agree -it's probably too early for optimism but optimism is all I have, lol
