I enjoyed your poem. It reminds me of the song, America the Beautiful. Yes, we have
much to be thankful about.
Indeed, the trials they had, sharing a land, almost starving to death and then to find people different from them coming to their aid. I enjoyed this read
Some lovely imagery, such as 'the sea of autumn.
Carol, I thought this was a very good entry and loved the perspective you came from. The only problem was that it was under the word count limit for challenge entries - not by much, but not close enough to be able to include. So unfortunately we had to disqualify it. The minimum word count is 150 words, and your entry was 131. Like I said, it wasn't far out, but too far to allow. It wouldn't have been fair to anyone else. I'm so sorry. Please don't be discouraged though, I love to see poetry in the Challenge and thought this was quite delightful. With love, Deb (Challenge Coordinator)
