    The castle is a place where poets dwell,
    Where each can cast their wondrous spell.
    From the turrets high to the dungeons deep
    From each portcullis to the central keep....

Hi,
It warms my heart to read the responses to what I feel was just a simple poem to my daughter Victoria.
At the time I was fighting in court to stay in contact with her and eventually won full custody.
Victoria is now 13 years old and is growing into a wonderful young lady.
Our bond is as strong as ever and we have a nice life.
Thank you all for your kind comments and I'm glad you enjoyed our poem.
Mike
