This is quite intriguing. And yes, I can see evening vespers, chilled and swallowed, being likened to a lifeless child. Really very, very good. Best wishes. Deb ps. thanks for reading and commenting on some of my poems. I greatly appreciate your taking the time to do this.

Remarkable! You have painted such a vivid image of the foggy night and then, comparing it to a lifeless child, I am in awe. Charles will love your entry as much as I do. As for limericks, yes, they are addictive and have become my favorite verse form because I enjoy humor so much. Best wishes in the contest! Love, Carolyn
