Definition

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.

The Toads

Real Toads is an open blog, with a membership option for those who would like to make an active contribution. Followers and Visitors are more than welcome to participate in all prompts and discussions.
