    Wow! What a beautiful poem. It may turn out to be prophetic, in that if we don’t take the right steps now our children will have an even greater challenge ahead of them.

    I agree with Paul! This is a beautiful verse and the first article really sets it off even further for me. Lovely work Lary!

    Easier to shake up a snowglobe, isn’t it? Very good.

  4. Dick Whyte

    I agree as well. A stunner of a poem. The imagery works perfectly. Lovely work Laryalee.

    I second Dick.

    Lary, thanks for sharing.

    Thanks so much, Paul, Laurence, Bill, Dick and Chen-ou…I’m caught up in the hectic preparations for Christmas with kids and grandkids, yet underlying all of this is a concern for their future. I really appreciate your comments and I’m glad the feeling comes through.
    Sending warm holiday wishes to everyone!
    :)
