I read all these poems (and re-read them) on a two-hour bus ride from São Paulo (Brasil) to a small town in the countryside.  Really enjoyed them all - thank you!

I bet this was a real challenge! The words feel great to say out loud. And it's interesting to see the letters that 'e' combines with best...well, interesting to a geeky linguist like me at any rate!
@bcartw No Problem! I find this poem interesting and different from others I've read- definitely earns my vote.
