A Conversation for The h2g2 Poem

..that's really good - and somehow quite moving. The idea of just being able to be yourself - follow your own desires - lovely
You'll excuse me if I keep my own beast chained up for a while longer, though.

Thank you Lucinda. As I said in the introduction, the beast seems to have trotted off into the undergrowth somewhere. I am sure she is having a lovely time...
Putting things into words tends to remove their power, for me. Which is one of the reasons why most of my other poems are sad. But I did not know that happened when I wrote this one. It seems a long time ago now. I must admit, I am fond of it again, when I re-read it.
