|This is an incredible thrill for me, Michael. Firstly, I love your music. Secondly, last Boxing Day, I was approached via this site by a known young Irish Composer, Ian Wilson, who has asked to set a similar poem of mine as part of an hour-long choral work which is due to be premiered in County Wexford next year. My poem is Safe Harbour, but his other chosen texts are by top Brit poets Alice Oswald and Jacob Polley! I'm excited by this coincidence and LOVE that you are using poetry pages here to bring words and music together in this way. The emotional flow of your lyrics fit your composition like a glove... I can only imagine what on earth Ian Wilson has done with mine! Thank you so much for this. I have enjoyed every second. Love, Kate xx|

|"Across the Sea of Madness" brings all those difficult waves right back down to a lapping ripple, gently evening out the rough waters in life, with love...soothing our senses once again...

|Your poem and the music are just beautiful, great job Michael.|

|As usual, your music probably on Quicktime (free from Apple, folks) opened immediately. I did have to open another window to read the poem at the same time. The instrumental is very apropos for the poem and the metaphor of the sea is strong and compelling. Nice to have a true professional on board.

|Hello Michael, I did not wait but went back to play your song. I closed my eyes for I felt I was in Heaven listening to your piano playing. Sounds classical; my favorite!My favorite instument is the piano, you did well to get it working for you. There are no words to describe the feeling I have now that I have actually heard the music. I'm in awe. Holly|

|Michael, I tried several times to open and play the music, but it won't play. I do like your song, though, and I will try to hear the music.
And thank you for your very kind words, and for your environmental efforts in Florida.
