Thank you @myramg for listening to my reading, and for your generous praise *blushes*. I'm so pleased you enjoyed Ode to a Sock Puppeteer, on EDP today, too. That was only a bit of fun as you clearly appreciate (certain others appear less impressed ;) ). Thanks again. O

Closed my dampening eyes, was transported - sublime, Oscar in name and honour - and your poem today in EDP was a real hoot!

Okay Oscar Windsor--I hate signing up for anything, especially social groups, but I did just so that I could tell you your poetry is good and appealing, touching. And your reading voice is quite classic. Keep up the good work.
