Kat, I would love to see these, and I received something today you might like to see as well. It's a drawing of an old slave in front of the cabin, playing what looks like a cross between a bowed psaltery and a homemade fiddle, with a bent-stick bow looking like a child's archery implement. If you would like to see a scan of it, pls send me your e-mail address via PM and I will beam it over.
Is it OK if I copy your post over to another thread as well as leaving it here? There are a couple of places it would fit right nice.
How about to post the poems, you make a thread for them, and I will include that thread in the index thread? I don't recognize any of the titles, but when we see the words they may bring up some connections.
BTW the one you posted-- did it become Bury Me Beneath the Willow??? *G*
And Burke-- if that Rocky Road is not posted in the threads or DT, would you add it here in this thread? Thanks!
