I love this very original poem. Good job.
WOW. I took a trip with you down memory lane. The sweetness is all there. But, most of all I love the ending. Just grand.

Creative,great rhythm and rhyme. Loved it!
Gorgeous memories! ...and as good as they were, you saved the best for last! I love this exquisite poem!
This poem is so sweet and evocative. Loved it!
I have not experienced receiving most of the letters you referred to in this delightful poem, but the ending gave me goose bumps!

What a beautiful trip through your life and how special to have those wonderful reminders of all of your stages and personas.
What a lovely, sensitive, reflective poem! It brought to mind many of the same kinds of letters from my own family, especially from my youngest son who wrote so tenderly when he was just a second grader. Your ending was a lovely surprise and perfect. Kudos!
How blessed you are to have such wonderful and treasured possessions from the lovely people in your life. I agree - the last line was the cherry on top of a special treat. Thanks for sharing.
This was so well done. I love your perspective and the natural flow of words. Awesome piece.
Great memories!
I have a box like this, too!
I could so relate to your poem this week of letters cherished through the years. They do contain your life's story.
I was disappointed that this lovely poem didn't place. I especially loved the line, "Their letters march across the years,
A fascinating pageant" I may not be a "real" judge, but I loved your poem!

Congratulations for placing 15th in level 4 and 22nd overall!
