I heard your poem on NPR today as part of a book review. Actually, they
read an excerpt form your poem, but the image of light (..if you cut me I
would shine...) struck me as very profound wisdom from one so young. Then I
remembered writing a poem of my own just before graduating eighth grade,
realizing the imminent loss of childhood.

Children offer their own insights and discoveries that we adults too often
ignore, having forsaken the simple wonder of the world. Thank you for
sharing and reminding us.

Hey Billy Collins -- do you actually read these comments? You won't
remember me, but you'll remember a friend of mine from Alabama -- she
kissed you at the Sigma Tau Delta convention. Write me back.
