Hello Noreen. This poem deserved so many more comments. It certainly deserved it's place in the Editor's Choice.

The book this entry will appear in is being edited by me now, and I've just reached "Merry Way." Noreen, I had to stop and leave a quick comment to tell you how much this poem touched my heart tonight. It filled me with nostalgia--both for my own childhood and for that of my children (now 22 and 20). It brought tears to my eyes.

You painted the picture of this wonderful childhood day so beautifully. The introduction of the mother's loving response was exactly right. This was glorious!

With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator and Editor, FaithWriters' Magazine)
