Poet Lady Katz: new forum reply to Nature and me..

New reply from Susan Katz

<p>I am very taken with your concept that nature does not live for itself – and neither do you.  I believe you need to work on your translation into English as there are some moments that simply do not work.  For example:  the line "Am I worth for living with nature" should probably read – "Am I worthy of living with nature?"  I do love your ending!  "Because living for each other/is a rule of nature."  Is it A rule or THE rule?  In any event, thank you so much for sharing.  I think your poem is filled with emotion and truth and a message that is important and meaningful.  Thank you so much for sharing with me.  Your friend in poetry, Susan</p>
