Thank you for your kind comments on The Washing Line.
I love the sentiment of "The Heart That Hopes" and especially this line
"People will make a village wherever they are gathered"

Ah Hannah... you pull at my feelings...please keep doing it. It's interesting you mention about it being OK for men to cry now. I will certainly pull up your poem 'men can cry now'. I also wrote a poem in this vein which I've yet to post. Will let you know when I do.
Thankyou for interacting. I appreciate it.

Your sample ‘the heart that hopes’ is a beautiful and deep piece of writing.

Thank you for commenting on Clinging to Convention. This is very much a real person in my home town. I try to portray real people where the poem has a documentary flavour. I think you do too. Appreciate your take!

hi hannah. thanks for kind comments on Stu of the Steps. Reading it again, I'm still not happy with it...the rhythms just don't seem to flow well and some sections are a bit "flabby". An important subject, though, covered by your recent one as well, so thanks for the encouragement!
posting on here rather than my poem section as I fear i could be stirring up a hornet's nest of controversial views... maybe that's worth writing it for alone!

Thanks for the great comment on The Veteran. You understood exactly what I was trying to express.

Thanks for the nice comment on Timmy. He was my tiny (2kg) dog. Wee but really feisty and never agressive, a real little terrier. My husband, who had never had a dog,was very agin one, but became really fond of him, and used to walk round the house everywhere, carrying him He could climb rocks like a goat, (four wheel drive!), but couldn't get down, so we had to prise him off with a fishing rod, and catch him in a beach towel.

Thanks Hannah for your like and comment on "Forgotten". Your poems are ravishing and it's a lovely treat to read them.
Fri 2nd Feb 2018 09:41
Hannah, many thanks for the likes and comments on WIGIG and WIGIG2.
You'll notice I've deleted them both (as in when it's gone, it's gone) as I only posted them to vent a little frustration at the current events concerning the plight of some women.
Keep up the good work. You are always an interesting poet to read.
Mon 22nd Jan 2018 19:45
From your sample:"I think the heart still hopes
Even when all hope is gone."
I think so.
I try and follow the Stoics (From Zeno to Marcus Aurelius) and be a realist and avoid the poets (as is the Stoic way). But I can't. I'm like a rat-terrier who chases rats; because he has too. My heart will always hope, as much as I try and mind my mind, because it has too.
Thanks for sharing your work.

thank you Hannah. I did indeed know that. The reader interprets the use of words in different ways sometimes. All the best, Colin.

Meant to ask if it is ok to post my poem based on the Caged Bird? M😀
Sat 28th Oct 2017 20:19
Hi Hannah. An old friend of mine who is also on this site, Winston Plowes, has suggested an interesting experiment. You take a line or two of a favourite poem and create your own where each word becomes the last line of your new poem. Having recently read one of yours, I thought I would use a little quotation from the Caged Bird... hope that was ok! I will post the result on my page, but enjoyed letting the mind wander with your original words. You should try it too - it's fun! cheers, mike

Hi Hannah. You are clearly a prolific encourager of those on this site as well as a sensitive poet. I am enjoying your work and appreciate the positive feedback you have given on some of my efforts. we are all following Auden's advice when he said "A poet is, before anything else, a person who is passionately in love with language."
Thu 19th Oct 2017 19:27
Thanks so much for the comments on Cooling Towers and Death Is The Only Song. I really appreciate the feedback and thank you for reading. I've started working my way through your work and am already really enjoying your style. The Grass and The Garden Shed are particularly good. Thanks! Tom

Many thanks for your comments on my last two poems. Yeh, they are both about him. I expect I'll be writing a few more before the year is out, too.

Welcome to WOL, Hannah. That is a lovely photo. Is it you?
Thanks for your recent comment. I will try to catch up with more of your work.
Dancing has been a joy to me since childhood, nothing extraordinary, just the love of bodily movement in rhythm to melody, often in my head only. Always seemed a likely 'partner' with the love of poetry, both reading and writing.
Tue 26th Sep 2017 23:54
thanks for commenting on 'Passchendaelle' Hannah - it was one of a selection of poems I wrote and put to music in 2014 on the anniversary of WW1. Researching the project was an eye opening experience - and as you say, so many young men and women were taken so young.
Sorry it's taken a while for me to respond - I haven't been on the site for a few weeks

Thank you for your comment on Puerto Rico Poem Hannah.
On that day, my wife Linda and I awoke to a beautiful sunny autum day. We worked in our flower beds,preparing plants for winter. While the carribean prepared to survive,again.
Now our plants have a better chance to survive the winter.
While the people of the carribean pray they will survive this
Hurricane season. We have cruised the carribean Islands 15 times,and are booked for a November cruise. While they suffer through months of deprevation. Life is unpredictable.
It can also define us. I was in the Vietnam war. Me and all the other 19&and 20 year olds. were no match for the Vietnamise people. But i learned resillence there. The Islanders are tough. They will survive..they have the heart that hopes

thanks for your kind comment on 'The Devil Don't Own Me' Hannah - I'm really pleased you liked it and thanks for taking the time to comment

Let's not forget Emily Dickinson:
"Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul - and sings the tunes without the words - and never stops at all."
Or Andy Dufresne (from Shawshank Redemption): "Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things... and good things never die."
Personally, I think people with no hope, kill themselves.
Great poem, classical in style, upload more!

Good Morning Hannah, Thank you this beautifully composed poem which bears witness to the words of Alexander Pope who said, ¨Hope springs eternal in the human breast ¨. Keith
