Natalie's Gift

Natalie’s gift, a poem for me Was the best present I received Unexpected, it touched my soul - Curing me from poetry mold (A condition unbecoming) With a smile I was released From days of dark futility Inspiration came, bestowed glow - Natalie’s gift I give her thanks for helping me Get rid of the mold festering Inside of me, and truth be told I’d still be there if not for her bold Poem that described me "to a T" - Natalie’s gift 1/2/12 (quote from Gwendolyn in Natalie's comment section on Natalie's poem "To Susan from Natalie") Received Honorable Mention in "GIFTS GIVEN, GIFTS RECEIVED, A RONDEAU" contest
