This is a great tribute and card that you have written for your wife. Evidently, she is a very special lady to you.

Your artwork is fantastic and your rhyming is flawless. I wish you good luck in the contest...Bill

    Thanks
    She loves it
    It's going to be hard replacing my brother's artwork. I hope to find someone that can mimic his work so we can finish this for the family.
    thanks again

Positively excellent, though your main word, used a couple of times.
Very good with the imagery, almost like a limerick or touches of a child's poem written in an adult style, but plainly will appeal to all.

You did very well here author.
My very best wishes, though limited sixes.
Best wishes.

Hi Gene! Such a delightfully adorable poem I enjoyed reading. It teaches a moral to the story that people don't have to always be sour and grouchy. Your words beat musical tunes as your rhymes roll down the page as this Angel helps out this man. lol liberty justice WELL DONE.

I loved your story about this bad tempered, sour curmudgeon and I particularly liked the fact that she was chased by a mouse cockroach and bug! A very unusual and brilliant write, love Dolly x

This is delightful. I guess as this is a Valentine you are the curmudgeon and you wife is the angel? No offense intended...
Thanks so much for sharing and making me smile.

Yeah, I'm married to the human oil stain, also curmudgeonly, so this resonates with me.. We've made it 41 years so far...Never considered divorce...murder perhaps. It's clever despite your having to strain for rhyme. But unlike so many poets and writers here, you give your readers specific, concrete details. You set us right down in your scenes and take us along for the ride. I agree with Flaubert that you have talent: "Talent is long patience and originality, an effort of will and of intense observation." B.B. Rose

    I do like Flaubert's definition. I might have to check this guy out. We're at forty-two and she still gives me crap about my hoodies. I guess that's why I wear them.
    Thanks, I always appreciate and respect your input.
    I'm off to edit four times and then send it out for number five.
    thanks again

This is a lovely story. I like the image of the angel aiding the curmudgeon to change his life. Your poetic form is smooth and I enjoyed reading this poem. You have a vivid use of words that brings the poem alive.

Hi, Gene;
This is a lovely story and I think we all need to be reminded to open our hearts. Once a heart is open to life, there's no telling what could happen.

I will pray for you to find an artist; I'm of absolutely no help in any other way,

~patty~
