|Youthful innocence knows not the boundaries of the impossible. Only that opportunity is everywhere and love is never far from the heart willing to seek. Belle, you capture those youthful emotions with a flair, a romantic air. And I do love it so. Peace joy, summer love and all things good and wonderful be yours my dear friend. Jon Michael|

|It takes a life time to learn how to be young
Not how many spins of the sun.
Your best days are now
make them a WOW.
Lines show character
and how to be wise
yet up her sleeves
is that stunning surprise.
Women only blossom after many years of unlearning
what it is to be a woman of desire to set a soul on fire. xx

|Ah yes reliving wonderful moments of the past can salve the effects of disappointments in life.|
|Reviewed by John Flanagan
|"...too little lived to find much sorrow in..." now there's the rub!
This is fine, Belle, exceptionally fine for you understand, you know, you feel...and how you express and communicate!
Right up there with the very best.

|the mystic wonderment of untrammelled whiteness pervades your words and sentiments here, Belle. The vitality and freshness in this is truly revitalising and, as it were, wipes the slate clean. The beauty of white is that it is, optically speaking, a combination of the whole and hence speaks of perfection - which, in our mind's eye, perhaps the best days of our youth, whether ill-spent or innocent, always were. You are at your best and most profound here, yet with a delicacy and elegance of spirit that always leaves us with your inimitable lightness of touch. Another sigh-worthy write from you, Darlin. Hope you are well. xx|

|As always a very compelling writing. Love is where the heart is, especially mine.

|To be a virgin in the poetess's heart, once again.|
|Reviewed by Richard King
|Yeah, to be young again, but would we if we could. My generation has had the best of it, once we got past those post depression days. Electricity, indoor plumbing, paved roads and air travel are all common place today and were for most of my life and now the computer technology and all that it brings. I couldn't have asked for more. You make it sound so delightful, but I'm pretty happy with my current station in life. Of course, I love to dream too. Thanks for allowing me to share yours. Dick|

What poetic wonder you weave.
Always magical- touching.
|Reviewed by Felix Perry
|Fantastic write...your subject and the picture you chose to represent it are perfectly attuned. There is something utterly sensual to white summer dresses. They imply, no matter what age the woman wearing is, the sweet virgin innocence of youth and the carefree times of summers.
