Devonshire, Beautiful like the County

Beauty abounds like the English Counties name This all American girl, New Jersey dame Curious I was when Devonshire graced my eyes Then I started to read and what a surprise This language we know written as art Engulfed my enthusiasm, caressed my start I just a novice on my writing road Becoming totally absorbed, eventually showed Learning my craft, soon we collaborated This budding poet, no longer shaded Her brilliant guidance, paved my lay Alphabetical characters allow me my say <*>

    Carolyn really is one of those natural beauties. A wonderful woman and friend to all, I think you've captured her well in your lovely poem. I know she will absolutely love this! hugs, Catie :)

    Carolyn is one of the greatest poets here on the Soup! She has the kindest heart of anyone I know! She would help anyone she could and guide all those the needed the help! You are wise to take council with her and go under her wing, she is brilliant! And speaking of brilliant, this poem is simply brilliant! I see her influence in your writing style! You are doing awesome, you probably don't need any help, but if you were to get some Carolyn would be the one to seek! Wonderful piece. Great Work!!
