|So poignantly written that it is hard for the reader not to be drawn into the verses without feeling nostalgic. The deep longings of the child who was on the brink of womanhood and the yearnings of a woman to be that child again. Deep and meaningful.

|I can relate to the yearning for that moment in the past when things were clearer, calmer, with only simple concerns. I loved the line where you see a girl and want to become a woman in one glance. Beautiful. Liz|

|Wonderful how you bring out the longing. Make us see and hear and feel the child and the woman, insofar as they can be separated.
Thank you, Sheri! <3 'Pea' <3
