As if I were there while you saw the little girl. Nice touchy poem. So I gave 10.

Gillian, your timing and metre in this poem are so good! tears sprang to my eyes at the last line and I felt what you did - though I admit with shame that in life I fight these feelings back, in fear that I'll be overwhelmed by them.

A great poem Gillian, it's always worrying to see a child in distress and wondering if you should get involved. Well written. Best wishes, Andrew

Gillian, Lovely poetry. The shattering of of innocence, of childhood dreams and expectations is so very cruel, and I think you capture this sadness in your write... portrayed by a childs anger. Thankyou Egal..
