Thank you for a little bit of in-depth sharing.
keep sharing Richard the world needs more heart! a perfect structure and flow yet again 8-6 lends itself to such a melodic unfold as did the alternating lines of rhyme in each stanza that gives a resonant tone in alternating effect in juxtapose. This has the drift of songwriters blood Sir Richard

As you know, I'm not into the exacting form passion that you demonstrate, so I can't appreciate that. But I am a very rhyme-and-rhythm tuned writer, so I totally jive on that . . . this might be the best I've seen it in a long time, where the words roll off the tongue with such rhythmic smoothness. Also, your imagery is nicely woven & visual, with a strong underlying message (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

PS . . . Richard, it's leap day . . . will you marry me?

This is beautiful, I love these lines.. the birds will sing and take to wing and poets’ words live on “ this is like a love letter to your sweetheart.. very romantic I also like “The rain will fall and trees grow tall, life goes on, it’s true, so, while on earth,
for what it’s worth,
I’ll share my heart with you.
Nice imagery and flow throughout.

Not only creation that zings the imagination, such lovely views... but also your usual polite address to form.. seems even so, immensely natural as well as academic.

You display and teach so subtly, Richard. One day, when really brave, might try again! Til then, bravo!
