Thoughts of a Bag Lady. -- by Member: Denis Barter, Canada -- added: 1/13/2017 10:15:38 AM

William Willis said:



Hello Denis,I can relate to this as I spend quite a lot of time in Glasgow City Centre. The many Eastern Europeans who are pouring into Scotland has been vast. I have seen more "beggars" in the last 2 month than I have seen in a lifetime. It's a problem the city must deal with more efficiently. Your poem is excellently constructed and paints a thorough picture of the plight of this lady. Respect dear sir. Wm. /|\

Hello Louise, a very well rhymed dedication to your brother. Gilbert has done well when you consider his humble beginnings. You have both suffered much trauma in your lives and have stayed strong for each other. A really honest from the heart poem. These are the best poems. FIVE STARS***** Wm.

Susanne, this is wonderful in every way. In a way, whatever our parents tell us is gospel truth. Obviously this fantastic voyage is fantasy and maybe born from medication. It does not detract from the facts of the Challenge set by Denis and gives the reader a warm Father/ Daughter relationship feeling. You are a master of words and the picture painted is sublime, You are a talented writer! Five Star Award Winner!***** wm.
