Benedicte, Excellent travail!

Benedicte,

Excellent travail! C'est un beau billet doux lettre à la paix - si émouvant et poétique. Il est très intéressant que vous avez choisi de personnifier la paix, comme d'autres grands poètes et écrivains ont fait aussi! Je pense que cela ferait une belle chanson aussi. Qu'est-ce que vous pensez?

Merci de partager votre oeuvre avec la communauté de World Pulse!

Hannah
