I love this poem, too. And I also think the reversal in the last stanza is inspired. Congrats, Melissa!
Oh, and all those water words throughout are a nice touch.

Bill, Gail, and Martin, I'm honored. This thread sure makes me feel warm and fuzzy (which is way more pleasant on a 90-degree day than I would have guessed...)
