Having just listened to (part of) one of her works, I have to agree with your far more lyrical description of them.


An Exercise

I see no sign of unsteadiness.


Buttigiegiana

2019-05-22
I've been to South Bend a couple of times. It's a pit, but Pete seems like a good guy, the poem is delightfully light-hearted, and the title alone should win you some kind of award.


Undine; or Song for Solo :>)

Beautiful.


madly, insistently

A Note to Poetbay Friends

2019-05-17
You've always had a lot of gall. I'm assuming that that won't be the case from now on. There's probably no need to worry. I suppose that you still have ample supplies of bile.

I also wish you a speedy recovery.

Thank You for Your Condolences and Kindness

2019-05-14
Anything I can think of to say seems trite. I'm happy to see that you're carrying on.


The terrace of moonlit audiences

2019-05-14
Beautifully written, but I don't understand what's going on. Some research is called for, I think.

You throw up some pretty decent word work yourself.

Sneers for two species in a single poem.

2019-04-23
Thank goodness for fairies, and for fine writing.


Miriam V ... Of Life and Death Eternal

2019-04-23
I like the vigor of this poem, Joe. I hope that this doesn't offend you, but, to me, it brings a "Raiders of the Lost Ark"-like excitement to the Resurrection.


My Son No Longer Shines

2019-04-19
I'm very sorry for your loss, Kathy. I cant imagine anything worse than losing a child.


Miriam II...Antonius

2019-04-18
This is an excellent series, Joe.


Notre Dame

2019-04-16
Such a shocking, sad story. Notre Dame is the heart of Paris.


Miriam l... The Chosen

2019-04-16
There's a remarkable quietude to this poem, Joe. I greatly enjoyed it.


poets' concerto

2019-04-16
Very clever. I wonder if the apostrophe should be after the s in the title.


The wine gate

2019-04-16
A delightful poem about a beautiful place!


Master of Drivel

It seems that way, even before one gets to the end.


Give Us Stars

2019-04-01
Brilliant writing, Tom. The solar stanzas are appropriately brash. The lunar stanzas are delightfully lyrical. (I don't see much room for improvement.)
