running wild
among the stones
of an old homestead
               voices echo

    A gorgeous scene, thank you.

    of my childhood
    always arriving
    after the school bell

    Ab lovely, Jenny. . .

    The tanka is simply WOW!
    I read it many times and loved the way it ran 'wild'
    Hats off to the editors for choosing such good poems.

    I love this tanka, Jenny. It's so visual with the yellow daffodils and then we have sound in the echoes of children's voices as they run through the ruins of the cottage. Wonderful!
