Re: Sylvia

Normally, I’d say that this poem was posted too long ago to be exhumed, but as we are closing I’m not. Really like it. Great final image.

Well done. Was it published?

Cheers,

Hi Mac,

I often like poems that initially seem impenetrable - all the more satisfying when you start to find the way in.

Hi David,

I’ve tried to order one, but the payment form keeps saying my email address I enter is invalid, and won’t let me pay/order because of this. Could I order one from you?

Re: Firebird in Snakeskin

Thanks Not. See you in the next life on the new forums. I’m now really looking forward to its arrival as I suspect it will breath new life into this board, with many old names returning. Not that you and Mac haven’t been doing a sterling job.

Re: The Real Macaw (v2)

Hi Not, Yes, it’s a good poem now. The like the circularity and contrast of the ending. The extra verse gives that extra distance the ending needed from the beginning for that circularity to work better. It’s a good children’s poem or poem for adults who like pirates. You probably know this, but Kat...

Re: America in 2017

Hi Perry, Good to see a new post by you. I can sympathise with the content of this poem. From the outside America can seem as you say, especially with Trump as president. I think for it to be more closely related to Shelley’s poem, it could start with a characterisation of Trump as Shelley does with...

Re: The Ink Pantry (3)

Many congrats again Mac. I think my favourite out of these three is ‘The Fencer‘, but I really like ‘Piper at the Gates of Dawn‘, too.

You are getting quite a few poems in different places at the mo, which is great to see. Is there a pamphlet brewing?

Re: Title Changed (v4)

Hi Not, This has improved vastly since the first version. The rhythm In the first six stanzas now works really well and mimics the first stanza. However, for me, there seem to be two separate poems here. I think the couplets could easily be a strong poem without the long set up of the Jack and Jill ...
