I always wanted someone to set this to music. Do you have any poems that you would just love to hear someone sing, or have a background of drums or harps? Just a thought.
Set this awesome piece to some slow soulful music, it would be just right, i can hear it already....SMILE
Oooooh ...Yessss! I love this! Let me see what I can come up with. *clapping* Excellent Gloria!
