As Dorothy said in the "Wizard of Oz", there's no place like home, there's no place like home." Whether a physical structure or state of mind, We are home. Your poem is well written and to the point. The illustrations you have chosen are beautiful and so perfect for the poem. Leanne Lovejoy-Burton. All the best ~Warren
