I always enjoy what you write, but I must say this is one of my favorites.You convey a strong message in a few words, very clever and witty, and perhaps a bit wry.Joanny
Funny what happens when we're not paying attention. Nice work, Bug!
hee hee! What a great surprise at the end of your Magpie. Tasty little twist!
Some of the best statments are made with few words. Thanks Dana!
allusion to the biblical Eve. this is little jewel of defense. very womanly.
I loved it!
Way too easy to lose your innocence ... nicely done!
Nice one Bug! Why d'you think you write when you can WRITE.
You are brilliant...!
Age and the loss of youth is not something that we anticipate, it happens, of course, without us even realising. The strange nature of time. Wonderful magpie, Dana :)
I love this one!
Thanks everyone. I actually thought about taking the poem down this morning because I decided it was such a cliche.
How nice! I think a lot of ladies could relate to this one.Teresa
Oh this was delish!
That's sure to happen when you don't pay attention :) Nice one.

It wasn't cliche, it was very good! You use such few words to express so much - wonderfully written!
Great magpie...clever twist!

We must pay attention, or we'll miss all the good stuff! But not you, for sure!
I can just imagine Eve saying this. Perfect.
