Gosh, thanks Mac. That is very kind.

As is that second, Ian.

Since this feature is now up and running again - well I'm pedalling - I think there is a consensus worth recognising in a feature for this...

I think you're right Mac. It's one of my favourites on the current board.
to be totally honest... whenever you feel you really shouldn't write that, that's exactly what you should write.

Yeh, it has my vote as well.

3 strikes and you're in.

Are you okay with the idea of me putting this in "Features", Pauline?

Congrattos!

Seconded, that one of David's is really good. However I think he's still planning a revision, so we probably should wait a day or two...

Thanks Ian. As Ros says Control of the rhythm is great. This is how free verse should be, folks - not necessarily a strict obvious meter but always with that feel of meter and rhythm in the background...would be a worthy feature.
