    Jim,

    This was a very moving poem. I just found it a little bit a go a that “another website” place…lol. I hope you’re well and still come over to the coffee house when you can. I know the place is quiet but I think folk are starting to come back more. Maybe (so says the optimist)…lol. Again, Excellent work with this one.

    ecko.
