Every Day Poets

My poem 'A Stone for your Shoe' is up at Every Day Poets. HERE

Good ole internet... the system initially had a gremlin in the works and removed the stanza breaks, and the italics. So pending it being mended up there, I put the correct version here.

EDP were great to work with, as I said in previous posts. Not only did they help with at least three rewrites, sending helpful suggestions, they corrected the glitch as speedily as they could.

Lovely poem, V.

Can I just say, in EDP's defense, there have been some surprise software glitches affecting the layout of the poems. Yours hasn't been the only one needing a fix, but the team will be onto it asap.

Can I just point out that we at Every Day Poets did not REMOVE the formatting as Vanessa suggests. We have had a few technical problems which have resulted in some p[oems losing thei formatting and there is not now in out=r foiles a single version of this one that has the original. We suggest alterations to improve poems but we do not change poets' work. I would never do that!

Very effective, yes, liked this one a lot. It really is amazing how few words one needs to make a character come to life.

Would you please retract this statement from your blog, Vanessa?
