|If you, Dear Reader, have not had the unique experience of enjoying "Night Sounds in a Small Town" as a real-time event, you've missed something unique.
Of course, the description "Small Town" requires definition. I met my wife in a "small" village on the Winnebago Indian Reservation in Nebraska 62 years ago. A sign proclaimed, "Population 125." But never once did I see more than about the 50-60 that were gathered together at a basketball game. Once. In that little village, any night sounds at all were rare, although several times I did hear a dog bark. (But maybe that's cheating.)
The imagery of your poetry is magical and powerful, Carole. Love it!

|Words put to a Norman Rockwell painting. How beautiful are your words, Carole, to one that had lived in a small town... Well, compaired to Chicago and New Your City Peoria was, in the fifties a small town and at that time I truly did learn the beauty in small town living. A lovely poem, Carole.
Your friend, Mark

|nighttime in a small town is truly a psycho sensual experience -- the mind creates wonderful pictures from the sights, sounds and aromas that linger in crisp repose 'neath the sky of pitch -- you have captured the essence as a great poet can, romantically and whimsically -- a wonderful read -- peace and love my dear friend -- Jon Michael|

|By reading your words I have my ears unstopped and all my antennae searching, Carole. I am really there, it seems. Your powers of evocation are wonderful - are you a journalist?! This is more art than reportage, too. Love the tone of quietude you couch this in. xx|

|I remember too the sounds of my small town, before they put the bridge on our front yard, the seagull not yet going to sleep as they chased the last fish under the last daylight, and if you were lucky, a howl from a coyote that didn't made a clean jump over barbed wire...
