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.

I do love Bob Dylan as a poet, and even more when I've deepdived into his poetry... I have written a few poems on that, but today I link up a Second poem from Saturday's prompt.

Hi Marian & Guys (that's "folks" for non-Midwesterners, includes Toads and Guests)~~ Dylan is in hiding according to our brief GMA news this morning. I don't know the details, I'll look into it soon. He has been my hero poet and song writer/singer since he went public.
I'm posting a re-run of Saturdays poem. My link didn't work early so just a few readers. Sorry for those who came, maybe you'll read it again. A short ditty that started with Dylan's wind blowing as did Bjorn's that day.

I am sharing another page of my collection as I update my blog. No comments required, just an invitation to read.

Marian said...

Hahaha Kerry, OF COURSE! :)

My son's name is Dylan :-) Love this Dylan too. (Although I must admit if he's named after a Dylan, it might just as well be Dylan Thomas)..Linking up my response to the weekend challenge, as I was late in completing it!

No worries, Marian. I changed mine but I hope the Dylan bus has not left by Thursday!
