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!

Good Monday morning, dear Toads! Welcome, all members and visitors. I don't know about you, but I am quite grateful for a new Monday, to dispense with the week that's now gone by and to begin fresh today. In that spirit, we invite all of you to share a poem with us here. Link up any poem you like, and please remember to visit some of the other poets who have joined in. Everyone likes to know that friends have stopped by, and we all appreciate comments. Go forth and visit!

Not a Christmas poem today (though it is long since officially the season, Christmas having overwhelmed Thanksgiving and now lobbing a few grenades at the battlements of Halloween's castle), but very much a December one.

I have a link for you today from Poets and Writers:
Did you know that Marianne Moore tossed the first pitch at a Yankee’s game in 1968? The Spectator analyzes Linda Leavell’s new Marianne Moore biography, Holding On Upside Down, and offers a compelling assessment of the life and work of the famed poet.

No poem today, sorry.

One from the dusty old archives of 2011, kids. I need to make that walk again, that I speak of in the poem.

A new Monday is always a good thing.
I have a couple of things I've been playing with for several weeks now, to the detriment of an already untidy house, so it's now or never.

I'm running SO FAR behind … I have MY challenge I hosted to still read and now just under the wire here.
I was away for the weekend with for my husband's 50th birthday and "played" catch up today. Will visit everyone tomorrow morning.

OOps, my post is NOT "adult." That was last time...

Trying to keep in touch with the Divine Lilypad as much as possible. It's colder than charity up here in Wisconsin, but like Rhoda said, I'll "keep" better!

Mine is an Advent poem... Love you all madly! Amy

Hi Marian ~~ I like your picture. I've never been to Dubai but my kids have been several times. They say it is a nice place to visit.
(Sorry I'm running late this week.)
