    Amazing poem Paul – beautifully worded and executed. I hope you like the articles I put with the poem. It seemed like something that had a relationship worth exploring. Thanks again for such great submissions. This one has been floating around for a while now and I am so happy that we finally used it.

    All the best-
    Dick
