I agree with you Daniel. This is a beautiful poem. I think simplicity IS timeless. We can all relate to the envy he feels...........I love the rhyme! I think there is a real charm to it...to envy those simple, everyday things that get to be a part of his loves life....very beautiful. (I do have rather simple tastes though.) (I admit this.) :) Sincerely, Mary

    Nice to hear you whistling this less narrow-minded tune, Lamont. 'In my opinion' is indeed the key phrase, as opposed to claiming there are 'standards' for what is great poetry
