A Decade, Today - Retrospective

Thu, September 13, 2001 08:53:39
Departing Dunedin
Unknowing stranger
in a strange land
greeted with smiles and
open arms; the feel of
our childhood...

Warm slippers, tea and
coffee service, cozy
beds, warm muffins,
open doors; the feel of
our childhood...

Found again with joyous hearts
Stolen by madmen
Crying Havoc! Loosing the
dogs of war upon
Our homeland
Your hospitality, heals

Written the morning we departed from Dunedin and Castlewood, P and D M’s bed and breakfast. Hand-written in their guestbook. Herself added comments and well-wishes that the angels bring their daughter’s home safely.

Retrospective
When I checked their website the next day, realising I needed to contact them about something, I found that P copied and posted my poem into the guest comments page.
