    Thank you, wildholly. I love to see older couples that have been together forever, and I hope that my hubby and I are one day the same, but it so sad when one passes away and the other is left behind. I cannot imagine that kind of grief. But it is such a lovely poem.

    Wonderful cards, Majanga - I especially love The Corridor and Rivermouth!

    Majanga great cards. I love the doors on the corridor. I cant read the words because I need my glasses, but love the process, you used.

    It does seem that the crocodile must have taken a long time with all those fabrics. That is my favorite.

    Even the Gardenias are lovely because you turned the house sideways.

    CastleQueen5, the reduction in photo quality also doesn't help! It's easier to read in person.

    The words on the card are the first two stanzas of the poem. They read:

    I passed through, I should have paused,
    there were a hundred doors. One opened.
    In there, someone whose name
    is not yet known to me lived out

    his middle years in simple terms, two chairs,
    one place laid for early breakfast, one plate
    with dry toast and butter softening. There
    his mind raced through writings
