a once steadfast stream

The mistress to her lover: a once steadfast stream now flows dangerously low. . . . this valley grows dry His reply: at its mountain source the stream takes what nature gives hills depend on water too. . . . though valleys need streams snowfall was sparse this season for Debbie Guzzi's Contest: "Love Talks"

Cool job Andrea. Best of luck! I wrote "Stress on Toll road Express" sort of with your Joe in mind. I think he might relate to it if you can get him to read it.smile, Agape, Moses

Great job.I know you will do well.Yes,that poem is for Tell her Story contest.But strange thing happened I messed up by not putting the contest on the bottom,so went to edit,and it wouldn't pop up on the poem,or any info. on it.I hope it gets read?But if you go to my edit,you can see I put for contest.Man,I feel very strong about that poem.Anyways,good luck,and have A GREAT DAY!
