New reply from Susan Katz

<p>Thank you so very much for submitting this powerful poem.  You have a real sense of the rhythm and imagery that makes poetry work.  You should be very proud of this poem!  I have received so many wonderful poems, it will be a very difficult choice, choosing just one.  I am grateful for your interest in my site and my mission to spread the beauty and power of poetry to all corners of the globe.  Have a lovely day, Susan</p>
