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 realize that when I first read Peanuts as a kid I didn't enjoy it too much... now as a grown-up I realize it's never really kid's humor.... ha.

Linking up a Quadrille I wrote yesterday.

Happy Tuesday! I'm sorry I'm late to the Tuesday Platform party bu I've just got home from a long, drawn-out meeting and it's coming up for 10 pm. I've posted a poem but will have to rad and comment in the morning. The Peanuts cartoon has cheered me up!

Happy Tuesday, fellow toads! Thanks, Sanaa, for the Penuts trip down memory lane! I'll be back tomorrow to savor the poetry!

@Bjorn
I related all too well to Charlie Brown. I called myself the female Charlie Brown. I was socially awkward and had a lot more frenemies than actual friends.
