Looted



Bronze fountainheads
cannot go back home
and dance again with the others
on sunshining days
in the Summer Palace

  3. I know you won't mind a long waffley comment. This poem just struck a note with me, because of the Picasso kind of thingy and the particular really defined tone which accompanied by my dazzlement at the neatest of the craft made me go WOW you are such a fantastic poet. Sorry, I will sit back down in my chair at the back and be embarrassed now.
