  1. Hi,

    I read you poem in Touch and and wanted to tell you how much it moved me. A terribly sad poem, extremely beautifully written. I read it several times. Thank you for sharing it.

    Then I checked out your website and read some more poems, until I found the Hungarian one that made me smile for I am a Hungarian immigrant, trying to write in English.

    • I’m glad you liked my work. Actually, both Melodies and The Island were inspired by my Hungarian girlfriend of 50 years ago. The greatest stylist in English, by the way, was Joseph Conrad, born and raised in Poland. Good luck with your writing, Art.
