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.

Nice words for us today, Kerry. I like to write but my working vocabulary is pretty plain. Also I am very concerned about having something worthwhile for my readers.
I hope to return comments better this week. We are still in the process of moving.

Good morning, friends........I posted my second attempt at a poem after the style of Judith Wright - this time not the style, but I borrowed the form of one of her poems as I liked its rhythm. Thanks for hosting, Kerry, and for all you do to keep this ship sailing serenely and steadily along, no small task.
