I really enjoyed this poem and what I plan to do now is to take it tomorrow to one of my local creative writing classes and read it to them at our Christmas party. We don’t do Thanksgiving here, but this is a rural area and there are several “milkers” in the class. I’m sure this will hit the spot! It’s a fine poem.
Thank you! I’m so glad you enjoyed the poem and appreciate that you are spreading it around.
