Meant to ask if it is ok to post my poem based on the Caged Bird? M😀

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."

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.

Ah thank you re Margaret. Wrote itself the day after she died! I'd been waiting a long time.
And thank you for your kind words about my Dad. Take care, and I look forward to reading more of your work 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.

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

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
