As usual, even after all these years, a triumph of words and mental pictures. You're the best ever!
A beautiful poem Allie....the day our children come to earth through our feminine bodies is so special...it is a day that is our birthday too..the day the mother was borne within ourselves...your son sounds sensitive and creative...like his mother...Love Sandyxxx
A loving and moving birthday tribute from mother to son. Not much an outsider can add except to say how damned well written it is. Word clearly run in the family. jim xx
Keppel, Allie, Jerry and who else...you're very lucky to have each other, so I guess you must deserve it - happy everything to everybody all the time..
Alison, the warm and loving tone of a proud mother resounds in this birthday tribute. Many happy returns Keppel! Kind regards, Justine
This poem warms my mother heart; too, it reminds me of a childhood love of words. Keppel is clearly a gifted soul in the way of words, but also with the beauty of a mother who celebrates him! Happy Birthday, Keppel! ! ! ! ! Love, Esther : ]
A delightful tribute to a delightful lad. Lovely, Alphonse...
Your painstaking intervention for Keppel is very exceptional! This gift is a treasure indeed.
Very nice, Alison. The poem, although written for Keppel, has universal appeal. I am sure your son is just as proud of you as you are of him!
