Thanks for your understanding observations, Conny. Icurrently try to do at least a short poem per day, or else a few stanzas of one of my long poems, usually the one consisting of memories from the day I met my beautiful dife, in 1953 until her death in 2086. This should take me a couple more if I can keep going that long. As to short aily poems, my difficulty is s often finding the best last line as thinking of an idea and first line. How are you on last lines?" There's one I am stuck on just now. I think I may have used up the good linesd too early and may have to rearrange the stanzas somehow.. If I can't make it work that way I may post it here next Tuesday to see whether you or anyone else who looks in has a line to suggugest.

Mostly, though the first and last lines spring into my mind at about the same time the idea occurs to me. I like it best when the poem writes itsellf.

I think I have to leave this one the way it is. Not a big deal, just an amusement,
