      Bridget, I think that for the moment you should be satisfied with the comments that those of your own age leave on your poems. Older poets might be unkind about bad spelling, words missed out, the ago ... more

    Oh do come on people. Lyric writers and poets are not the same thing simply because they deal in words. To compare lyrics to poetry is on par with comparing a Guiness ad with a David Lynch film. They serve a different purpose. Cohen, Dylan and the semi illiterate David Gray can hardly be classed as poetical let alone poets.

    I speak from experience.

      I totally agree, and thanks. And not just 'in the making' - one or two are a tour de force of recreated actuality that can chill. This guy's going far.

    Lori, fantastic work. Alphabetically by author I reckon is enough to negotiate the volume, and saves having an index.

    Happy Tuesday, all. So we have 32 contributors and roughly 80 poems, some of which may spill into two-pagers. When I hear yay or nay from the last that got in under the wire, I'll list them. PoHo, no more invites, 'kay?

    Now, how do I organize these? Theme is nice but difficult; alphabetically? Randomly to mix it up? Let me know, I'm not calling this one.

      I agree alphabetically will save alot of ''bickering'' too! (not that anyone would!)

    for those of you Poets and Hunters who enjoy the troubadours like Leonard Cohen and David Gray, i highly recommend tuning in to David Berkeley. i've seen him perform twice, and he is just magnificent. he has some outstanding insight for being rather young (late 20's?) he has no major label representation, but has his own website and soundbites on Amazon.

    Friends...I just posted 'Keine Stimme, ' a poem that took a long time to build, and within a few minutes it is on page two. If you have a chance, I'd appreciate you giving it a read. I bankrolled this one with my soul.

    Danke, John
