    I can't say I was impressed by the Caged Bird poem but This is a poem on a much higher plane. Here she doesn't need images. Her terrific personality shines through every line and there is an engaging simplicity of style.
    She was a proud, sexy, and dignified woman and this poem has great force and oozes personality. We all have our likes and dislikes. This one I love. Can we give more than a ten? No? What a shame!

    I am deeply moved by this poem. This poem constantly reminds me of my extraordinary relationship with Smt Hemangi S. Pradhan, my dearest wife of many lifetimes. Every woman is unique in herself. My wife is absolutely phenomenal. I love you Hemangi, on this day, as I have loved never before. (Report) Reply
