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.

How amazing it is to share New Year's Eve with all of our friends and followers in the Imaginary Garden... even though I'm pretty sure you all have a fabulous celebration planned to mark the passing of another year. Perhaps you do have a poem that you would like to share today, or you would simply like to leave a message in comments.

Best wishes for the year to come: may it be a time of new opportunities and successful accomplishments.

See you next year!

Even though I don't like the sound of the new year ahead [twenty thirteen doesn't have a ring to it for me], I am quite hopeful. Wish everybody a year without troubles and problems.

Thank you Kerry.
I finally managed to get my head around the form prompt you set us this weekend.

I have nothing newer than Saturday's write but I think it opened an interesting discussion about the differences between the poet's intention and the poem's reception by its readers.

My poem's not about the new year so I'll say it here: Happy New Year!

I shared a poem you may have read at the Pub, but now you can read it in the Garden . . ."gonna make this garden grow . . . make it fertile ground." Or KEEP it this way. What a wonderful place! All the best in the New Year for you and yours!
