Very well written - I enjoyed this one. I loved the legacy left by Sunset Sally even after she had passed away. I did notice a few sentences which didn't begin with capital letters, but I think perhaps that was part of the poem. (I really don't know much about these things!)
This is a neat telling of a story in poetical form.
I would only encourage you to watch your rhymes; some of them sounded a bit forced to me.
Keep up the good work!
Awesome, awesome, awesome. I haven't found one yet that has touched my heart like this one. Good job.
WOW! One of my favorites!
What an absolutely lovely narrative poem!
Very moving. There's something powerful and riveting in narrative poetry. Traditional thinking may frown upon the capitalization style you've adopted, but you're consistent. With a beautiful message like that - who cares?
Wonderful poem.
I am in awe of what you've done here. It's creative, touching and heartfelt. In my book, it's a winner!
Congratulations on reaching "Highly Commended" with this delightful poem!
Congratulations. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity to read your poem. This is absolutely beautiful. Good job.
Birdie, this is lovely! I plan to feature it on the Front Page Showcase for the week of October 15. Look for it on the FaithWriters home page.
Beautifully written with a wonderful message. I love your beginning stanza, "Moonlight spun on silver wings like fairies o’re the spires. Raindrops kissed with gentle lips; each droplet she admires." Congrats on being in the Featured Member Showcase!
I'm not sure how I missed this beautifully crafted poem, but I'm glad it appeared in the showcase, allowing me to find it today. Blessings, Birdie!
cool, I really like this
Birdie, this is beautiful! You painted pictures and strummed my heartstrings with your words. My soul was "moved with compassion" as I read it. Bless you for spreading "SON"shine.
Wow! That was beautiful and inspiring. I am blessed to have found this group adn look forward to growing with you all. Thank you for this lovely piece. I think it would be fabulous to use in praise dance!
This is absolutely beautiful and such a blessing. So worthy of showcase placement. Wonderful!
This was inspiring to me. It was also very well-written.
