      You know, if communication were even a secondary concern when you write, you would make sure that your comments did not sound as if you put them through a cheese grater before you sent them.

    Hey, would anyone know about where I can find Edna Millay's views on the social more of her time and place? Much appreciated.

      Millay was a pacifist until World War II, when she became something of a war-booster. She wrote a great deal of bad (for her) poetry about the Nazis and Japanese, and some of her poetry and commenta ... more

    Hi! My brother has been writing poems for years......I finally talked him into posting his poems. I'll warn you........they are not my 'taste' in poetry. They're a little on the ''dark'' side but as he says ''We're different people.'' He says feel free to comment HONESTLY. He's tough. (So he says!) :) I'm laughing (he's not) . Thanks guys, I know you have enough poems to read as it is but he's sorta hoping to see what people think. His name is RAY GASIEWICZ

      Thanks, his poems sometimes even scare me so I'm curious to see how you guys view them. (He says he ''writes it'' so he don't ''do it''. :) Sincerely, Mary
