    Expressively penned. It's truly a flow from the bottom of your heart. I know your mom must be proud of you during her sojourn here. Well done. AO

    Beautifully penned through your love for your mother. I can feel that strong emotion throughout your lovely poem. I lost my mother too and it's a heartache for sure. Thank you for my winning placement in your contest love. Love, Gail

    Constance, I do believe that only you could do this form this well. It's your invention, right? I hope to try it. I just could not come up with anything for your last contest, but I really love the "feel" of your title Melancholy Memory and the feel of this poetry form. thanks for the example!

    A new form...... a wonderful challenge you have given us again, Constance! This beautiful and touching poem is a perfect example........and Melancholy is the right description of both the poem and form. I'll give it a try. In the meantime......I am very grateful for the honor in your Memories at the Door Contest placement......thank you so much! :) So nice to see you posting more each day!
