  1. This is a great poem. I’m enjoying reading all your poems of the day, even when I’m out of sync with them. When I eventually post some Australian poetry I’ll look forward very much to your opinion.

  2. Your collection is certainly eclectic, which is what I like about it! I wouldn’t have heard of most of these poets if not for you. It reminds me that if it hadn’t been for a dedicated group of admirers who distributed her work after her death, we may never have known of Emily Dickinson. A shocking thought!
