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.

A Word with Laurie: Review



With 2012 drawing to a close, I thought it would be a good time to review the words I selected this year with links back to their original articles.


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


You can use any of the words in your poem today, or use all of the words if you'd like an extra challenge. Please link to Mr. Linky and then kindly visit other participants in this prompt.

Happy New Year!

Great prompt--I managed to smash in as many words as I dared, then used the remainder for the title :)

Susie Clevenger said...

Quite a list. Thanks for the inspiration Laurie!

This looks like fun, Laurie. Unfortunately, I read Sherry's contribution before I read the list, so I have to give my old head a good shake so all her ideas fall out through the cracks, leaving room for (hopefully) some of my own.

What an odd and brave assortment! I used 5, but that was the best I could do. Watched old movies tonight which helped a lot!
