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 Imaginary Garden ...

Favim.com
I can't believe it is the last Monday in April already and we have arrived at our 29th post on Real Toads. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the members of Real Toads who jumped in, ensuring a prompt/challenge or link a day. Without their dedication, this extravaganza of poetry would not have been possible. My gratitude also goes to our loyal followers and friends who visited RT every day and helped to keep up the momentum of NaPoWriMo through their participation and support. The merry month of May is sure to be a lot quieter around here, but we will be back to our regular prompts and challenges on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, as well as Open Link Monday. Without further ado, I invite you all to link up a poem today: something old, something new, not borrowed, maybe blue.

It's bedtime, I waited as I did'nt want to be first. But I'm sleep now and can't wait any longer.
First to Mr. Linky it'll be.

Thanks bunches for hosting, Jim,

Aw, I thought Monday would be April 30, but it's only the 29th. Oh well, that means I have something prepared for next Monday.
Now it's time for me to go to sleep. Will try to remember when I get up that it's still the 29th.
I love this photo. Sherry will know why, even if there aren't any goats on the roof.

Here's one I made up over breakfast:
It seems I'm getting into my stride now that the stays of the meter corset have been loosened. [thank goodness. I was getting quite tired of it].

Sharing a combination again... my photography, William's poetry. I've been swamped with life lately, but I will be around to visit and comment off and on today.

That's my dream house, in the photo. I have been going through my papers this weekend and found a poem I wrote in 1981. Decided to link it today. Sigh. Sometimes when I read my old poems, I miss my old brain (that was new back then)!

That's a very nice house!

Still trying to make the sonnet form do things it's not meant to do. Listen to the song, though: Oldie and still a Goodie.
