oh wow, I'm in love with this poem. Every phrase, every image, every word is exquisite!

I was drawn in by the rhythm and held captive by each separate beautifully pictured stanza. Outstanding poetry!

So much for me thinking free verse has no rhythm! Beautifully done. I wish I was there.

This so beautiful, vivid and descriptive... just like a walk around this lonely yet magical island. Lovely poetry!

I enjoyed this. As a kid, in the spring we would hunt for fiddleheads. Dad knew just where to find them and Mom cooked them as a special springtime treat, Each Spring, I go fiddlehead searching so my kids might know the taste of. But alas, I can never find them. Perhaps you can direct me to your beautiful Fiddlehead Island. I love it when a poem takes me somewhere that few can go and yours did just that.
