    So strong, Penny; so powerful — wow! I particularly like the sound and image of lilies-of-the-valley “ringing in spring sun” (“Carillon”), the epigrammatic couplet that ends “Remnants”, and the inclusiveness of the final line of “Bluebird”, with its larger spiritual implications.

    Thanks so much, Bill! How thoughtful of you to take the time to read my work and even single out specific lines and images. Your words honor me today 🙂 I hope to find time in June (less busy time) to explore the archives on Verse-Virtual and read the work of many others…as well as read more of your fine work.
