Smokey & Avalon ~ :lol: 8) Liz ~ :D You are quite right, of course it "doesn't mean that poetry is outside the bounds of scrutiny and assessment". It all depends on who , with what credibility and authority, 'assesses' it. ;) "Any fool can make a rule, and any fool can mind it." ~ Henry David Thorea...

Thanks Liz! :D

Nothing like 'from the horses mouth', eh? ;)

Yeah, I like my bemused bookworm, I found him on a German website of animated gifs and stuff. 8)

Quotes on Poetry

If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. ~ Leonard Cohen God is the perfect poet. ~ Robert Browning You will find poetry nowhere unless you bring some of it with you. ~ Joseph Joubert I don't create poetry, I create myself, for me my poems are a way...

There really is no need to persist in proving my point, Paula. :D But, since you insist... The 'minute' to which I referred was that which elapsed between my edit (to add , NOT "delete") and Taigaku's post in which he referred to mine... Are you grasping it yet? Just ask Taigaku if there were anythi...

Thank you for the demonstration and confirmation of my point about 'reactions based on presumption and prejudice', Paula! :lol:

Anyone can see the posts, and the minute it took to ADD 'this is a joke, right?'. Not to mention page 2! :roll:

Well, well! It doesn't take much to stir 'em up eh, P? :lol: The funny thing is, I thought your reference to it being your "other entry" was a dead give-away as another joke like the "Chelsea Hotel"... only waiting to see if any would recognize the author (not one familiar to me). :wink: I remember ...

Thank you, Midnight, :D

Henry Lawson's always been my favourite Aussie poet. This one was just so apt, wasn't it? :wink:

MY LITERARY FRIEND, by Henry Lawson

MY LITERARY FRIEND by Henry Lawson (1867-1922) Once I wrote a little poem which I thought was very fine, And I showed the printer’s copy to a critic friend of mine, First he praised the thing a little, then he found a little fault; ‘The ideas are good,’ he muttered, ‘but the rhythm seems to halt.’ S...

Great stuff, Taigaku! :D Ah, the contrast! The Great Divide, between the 'theory and the 'being'. Yep, the first part really is obscurum per obscurius ; ever the refuge of those "Who feel not, who know not - but preach!", as Henry Lawson said so well. http://img.allpoetry.com/images/bg/custom/Maatka...

C2 ~ I'm afraid only those with their graphics stored on a page somewhere on the web can upload images on here. You can't upload straight from your computer picture files. I link mine from my custom graphics page on AP. The quotes are just click and drag whatever line etc. from the thread (below you...

I don't quite understand what you meant by that, Liz :? You suggested I post the poem you remembered to "show the soft side" of me. How would that convince anyone whose mind is made up? The link to see what I'm about is in my signature. Why is that "ego based" to leave it up to people to choose whet...

I appreciate the thought Liz, but anyone genuinely interested in knowing anything about me can discover for themselves any time with a simple click on my author page. :D I have no need or desire to 'convince' anyone against their will. Thanks for remembering my attempt to put the tragedy of my Basen...

Laurie ~ Excuse me? I was just trying to END the spiral of "rumors" you refer to by clarifying the cause in order for it to be "stopped"! So, this begs the question: why do you wish to continue it by negative presumptions and attacks on me? :shock: 1) I only answered a PM I received to defend someon...
