Had to read a couple of times but your instructions below helped. Such an interesting rhyme that isn't easy to execute. Very nice Debbie Wish I could post pictures with my poems, I have some beauties and they add so much.

This is very likely to be a top winner. Very intriguing. Thank you for trying to help me. I got the url and hilighted it but can't get it to paste. I will save your instructions and try to get some hands on help. Andrea says not many are pasting pictures on their entries. Love, Joyce

A brilliant than-bauk with a touch of something ominous (for me) but very vividly told with impressive lines-- I like so many of your lines here Debbie! The more I read this, the more I am loving it=- faving this! And EEP! Why you have to be so sweet and hum?! I can't resist that humming! I have been meaning to write a sonnet but I am swamped o_O! Italian one too? I will see what i can do, sweetie Debbie-- not promising anything just yet but I will Try, just for you!
