The hardest of cold hearts can burn, The stillest of dark souls can shake The slightest sway of waves that turn, Can cause the toughest rocks to break The shiniest of pearls can dull, The prettiest of roses wilt Even death can feel the pull, Of natures touch and softest tilt The deepest buried rocks can shake, When crushed beneath the ocean blue The proudest of the proud will break, Some day your pride will shatter, too

    Wow, that last line really adds power to this insightful message, Dana'lynn. I have tried twice to respond to your email, but I'm getting a system error because it contains "characters" I think. Let's try it this way. Obviously, you know how to center a poem. You can use italics by putting an i between the brackets and make a poem bold by putting a b between the same brackets you use for centering. Hope this helps! Welcome back! Love, carolyn
