|What a beautiful poem. You are very talented.|
This really reminds me of "Goodnight Moon" or some other bedtime classic/lullaby. I don't know too much about poetry, but I know that I love this and that I envy your ability to write something like this. You make it seem so easy.
So, with your permission of course, I'd like to read this to my infant cousin, Niko. The first stanza is so appropriate for a child's bedtime ritual. Dumbledore had a line in the third movie that I think was very very Dumbledorian, it was the following: "From dreams we enter a world entirely our own. Let him swim from the deepest ocean or climb over the highest cloud." Or something like that. Anyway, I thought of this when I read that first stanza. And for some reason, I thought of William Wordsworth's 'I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud" as I read the rest of it. Don't know what that was about.
Thanks for your talent and sharing it with all of us,
Peace, Love, and Potter,

|I love it! This is absolutely fabulous. It seems to put into words the song that rises in my soul at the sight of a full moon. Thank you.
Author's Response: This poem means a lot to me. I'm glad you enjoyed it as well. :)
|So tell me, how many poems do you have in this book? You like the quatrain, abba. Is there a name for this? I am coming to appreciate poetry more lately.|
Author's Response: Actually, I don't have a lot of poems in that book. It's mostly a book of my mother's poetry, with a bit from me and my sister. It was fun to do though.
