    Looking Forward To The Spring

    of certain hidden treasure they may find.

I was lucky enough to accidentally stumble on your poetry, which I very much enjoy. Like you, I am retired and finding writing poetry very therapeutic, both in lockdown and because my husband is battling with cancer. Also like you, I am glad to have discovered Family Friends Poetry, who have been kind enough to publish a few of my poems. Very best wishes - keep writing! Ann

I just wanted to thank whoever it was who marked my poem as a favourite. This is the first poem I have ever had published, so it is very good for morale, firstly to have it published at all and then to feel that someone has enjoyed reading it. Thank you, whoever you are.
