    Mike – this was great. It's refreshing (although of course as usual, it nearly made me cry), but it was refreshing because it was from a child's point of view. Also, I like how you are able to write short poetry as well as lengthy ones – straight and to the point. Well done. And a Merry Christmas back to you and yours too.

    thanks Flups,
    yea finished some 20 poems that give a good historical overview of
    the Kokoda Campaign from 1st contact until the beach head battles..
    life has got a bit busier now but i do hope to self publish the entire
    series some time in the future. You will be one of the 1st to know
    when it is done.
    cheers mike

    Another great read Mike. I never knew about this guy. Is the man in your poem your father? Grandfather? Your poetry not only is moving, but also one of informing as well – to which you write to this day – to tell people, to inform them, to move them and to educate them. Today, you have educated me. Thank you.

    That sounds great Mike – sounds like a big task – but well worth the effort. I say go for it! biggrin.gif

    Also perhaps you could create your own anthology of poems – put them on your computer (if you haven't done so already), print them out & put them in a display folder with a cover page & a table of contents/index. You have so many that maybe you could divide them up into volumes (Volumes I, II & III etc) – a different colour folder for each volume.
