Biography

Robert Frost and Dante, Cummings and Brodsky, T.S. Elliot and Virgil, prefered reading by the shore. In the depths of winter, by a quiet lake, or while camping in the woods. A book in the office, Always Frost in the MG. A stack in the livingroom, a few crated in the barn. Shakespear in the (euphemism) reading room. Sylvia plat with the cookbooks above the oven door. Catullus by the bed.

If you want something more of me, you are at the wrong forum.
Regardless of what you think you see, and what you think of my decorum.

Dear WinterFrost, // Sylvia Plath above the oven door? You have a wry sense of humor, brother poet, and a bit macabre. I like it! // I am sure that Shakespeare could not be more honored than to be in the euphemistically named Reading Room, since that is where a great deal of reading can be done; and, for those who love to read, will be done. // I love your biography. // I will tell you what I feel to be one of the most poignant cries of anguish in all of poetry, a line of deep sorrowful regret; this line by T.S. Eliot: "I have measured out my life in coffee spoons." // So much of my life was measured so. // I always found that to be a heart-breaking line. // Now I must consider new lines among my heart-breakers. These lines by Chadirock Ticheburne: "My thread is cut, and yet it is not spun. / And now I live, and now my life is done." // I repeat: I love your biography. It makes me feel that we are brothers of the heart. // Bye now. // --Michael LP, Mr. Poet

Love the car and the lighthouse is beautiful. I too love the outdoors and it is one of my favorite things to write about.

Always love to hear what you have written with my eyes Winter! TY for your exceptionally creative mood poems! ginga

Poetry is not a turning loose of emotion, but an escape from emotion.

T. S. Eliot (1888-1965) American-English poet and playwright.
