Donna Eleonora,

I do not think you need to worry about interrupting conversations.  I
believe that if you stood to make a recitation, all those close enough
to hear would pause in their conversations to hear your words.  And
when you were done, they would either return to their conversations,
or stop to compliment you first!

And while I am still thinking about it, I do not believe I ever did
make you my compliments for that lovely poem about flowers that you
posted a week or so ago.  I was particularly pleased to hear it first
in your lovely tongue, and then in mine.
