That was so good! I could picture the scene so clearly. I guess it was just Hughs time to go but I wonder if things would have turned out differently if Wolley had gone with him.
This was a very interesting turn on "life." How innovative. How original. I never would have thought of canaries in a mine. Well done!
Really a master work! I can see why there are levels. Very good plot. Do miners really do that?
Oh, how touching! Skillfully written, with poignant symbolism.
Masterpiece all the way!! WOW! WOW! WOW!
Loved this! Very nicely written.
Just loved this - the reaction between the miner and his wife, the miner and the birds and the wife and the birds were all so unique and well done. What a poignant story!
Beautiful and haunting, with a very lovely ending.
I too am wondering what would have happened if he had taken Wolley.
Very nicely written. A great piece.
excellent writing skills here!
Superbly written. What a wonderful story - yes, a sad ending but beautiful anyway.
Oh, how beautiful and so touching. This really grips my heart ... my natural mother's name was June and my natural father was a coalminer who died in a coal mining accident at a very young age. I don't know any of the details, but you've just given me some imagery to go with the story of my heritage. Wonderfully done! Now, I need to go find a tissue so I can continue reading! Thank you for sharing your gift! :)
Beautiful entry. I was expecting the yellow canary to become an allegory of Christ's sacrifice, or some similar salvation message, but this still makes one think. Well done.
