Thoughts on a winter night.
Lines For Leonard Cohen
A simple tribute to Leonard Cohen
Lines inspired by the music of Prince Igor by Alexander Borodin.
One of my attempts at light verse.
Lines inspired by a documentary on B.B.C. Two television about the wild life of New Zealand.
Isle of Apples
Lines inspired by the tales of King Arthur.
Poem inspired by a documentary about whales and dolphins called Ocean Giants on B.B.C. Four television.
A good poem ought to have at least a few memorable, quotable lines, I think. Your poem, Unopened, impressed me with its skill and such lines as:
"I do not believe in the myths of fall
The false solitude of winter
Your letter may mix up the seasons
But, it cannot end them."
Such lines make yours a fine poem. The dilemma of whether or not to open a personal letter your lines capture well. That the thought of opening the letter makes you feel apprehensive you explore with careful clarity.
