Poet's Notes about The Poem

I made corrections in my original poem. I added extra words to my phrases. I have done that before. Because, sometimes words or phrases come to mind that I did not use in the orginal drafts.
The quote, 'only just begun, ' was taken from one of the songs

one of the contemporary singing duets that was popular with my family.
