One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

Open Link Monday

Welcome to the garden ...

This flower grew for the Hedgewitch.

... where real toads gather on a Monday.

All are welcome to share a latest piece of writing, seek commentary on an older poem or simply enjoy the wonderful reading on offer by our members and friends. Please remember that our Linkys do not expire, so late additions are always welcome.  Our only request is that you join us in the spirit of Real Toads: link original work, and return commentary.

A very pretty pink Zinnia. I call Zinnia's the crayolas of the flower kingdom because when you plant a pack of seeds, all different color flowers come up.
