This I really enjoyed

The winged fluttering pieces of nature
In youth we overlooked coz we were immature

Thank you for reopening my old eyes
They were shut for quite some time

fotever yours
Poetry cures
Love endures

Your garden

Thoroughly enjoyed this, lady A!! I could see it all. Course, my mind did all kinds of weird stuff with it. Wish I could type the thoughts without my fingers. But, they already flew away.
