Dear Mr. Doty,

I really enjoyed reading and listening to your poem, "Brian Age Seven." It touched me and made smile in a way that I really needed. Descriptions of young Brian's creation and how uniquely they were worded made me laugh at the attributes of small children that we all possess at one time. It reminded me of my own pictures from that age, or my little brother's colorful, energetic art, harkening to a time where everything was simpler. Thank you for putting your creation out into the world.
