Default How's It Been Hanging?

Dear Esteemed Master of the English Language (AKA Ho Ho Ta),

I have missed you & your handler (Ms Ho Ho). I bet you thought I had become a zealot or joined a cult. No, not again . . . been there, done that. I don't think the Amish will let me in again (long story) and Tony Alamo's is supposed to be shut down. I now where they live in Arkansas and the roads are still closed to the public. After all they did make some outrageously beautiful jackets.

I couldn't resist responding to your poems in your last few quotes to this thread. If you want my advice (no person with normal sanity would), I will hold back . . . would want to inflate a senior citizen's vanity. After all, it only makes them worse (or that's what they tell me). A few words of warning . . . Someone showed me how to count the number of words in a document using Word. The epic poems in your last post were 807, I know you can top that . . . so can I. Just thought you'd want to know that the younger Dimmers are watching and the machines can count now.

Will talk more later. I bet your mailbox is still full and not taking anymore posts.

Love (and I don't say that to many people),

M2M

Default Just a fist-bump (and a thread bump)

Moore to Me -

I had to bump this thread because I can't live without poetry (and this thread) any more than I can live without love (and thanks for yours. Dear Lady).

I don't really have a poem for you at the moment, but I can say that Mrs. Ho Ho and I are still very much in love as we approach our 28th year together. Our hearts still beat to the same meter, as our souls fill in the words. As I approach 80 y.o., nothing will ever match that gift.

My favorite is The Highwayman by Alfred Noyes. I first heard of it back in the 80s when watching Anne of Green Gables with Megan Follows. Singer Loreena McKennitt did a good job turning it into a song years ago...

A teacher read this to us in about grade four or five, it was the first time I'd really encountered poetry beyond nursery rhymes, and got me to search out some more on my own. I don't remember all the words, but I can still feel the rhythm that she read the poem with, how it evoked the cantering horse, the breathless wait .... it really stuck with me obviously.

But the poem that has always spoken to me the most is Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken”. I think it captures that feeling of having to make just one choice so well.

"The Fledgling"



So, art thou feathered, art thou flown,
Thou naked thing?—and canst alone
Upon the unsolid summer air
Sustain thyself, and prosper there?
Shall no more with anxious note
Advise thee through the happy day,
Thrusting the worm into thy throat,
Bearing thine excrement away?
Alas, I think I see thee yet,
Perched on the windy parapet,
Defer thy flight a moment still
To clean thy wing with careful bill.
And thou are feathered, thou art flown;
And hast a project of thine own.


Edna St. Vincent Millay
