  1. It’s warming to see this community gathering, and a privilege to play in this company. Thank you for the opportunity.

    I apologise for the typo in my poem. It should read

    First morning.
    The old tree’s shadow
    stretches from the sun.

    I promise to be more careful in the future. The circle you’re creating deserves that and more.

    • Fixed, Seánan! Funny, I teach grammar to high school students, and I was itching to add that apostrophe, but I have also learned to respect others’ words, and thought maybe there was a reason you wanted it that way. I should have checked with you!

      It is indeed a wonderful community that has gathering, and I look forward every day to seeing the new responses.
