      I love sharing other poetry as well as my own. I often open a book
      at random (poetry and other)and the words of this poem touched me,
      so it wanted to be shared. I loved that it was written so close
      to the time I came into this world ('46) and that W. H. Daniels
      had the same thoughts almost 60 years ago as I have now.

      Sending love to all,
      Sharon 444
