    Mark, Re: Seamus Heaney - there's are lots of his poems I like, he wrote a lot about the troubles, in the late 60's and early 70's which are interesting to read - as he is trying to keep a detached view. Poetry Hound - yes, I like Mid-Term break, very sad - re: potato digging - I think he picked that up from Ted Hughes - he was into that big style - potatoes are of course an interesting metaphor in view of Irish history.

    Allan, re: message last night. It's because I know that deep down inside that you are just a romantic at heart.

    One of my favorite Seamus Heaney poems is 'Mid-term Break.' It's listed as #60 on the Top 500 poems. Check it out.

    Hi everyone:

    I have spent considerable time over the last few days reading and trying to understand the battles and the flourishing animosity on this site.

    It is not possible.

    But before I turn my back on all of you permit me to list some names that are deserving mention.

    Mark Fry, Paul England, Sherrie Gonzales Kolb, Poetry-Hound.
    There are others and I do not know whether any of these names are real.
    Judging by the behaviour of these people however, it must be said that none of you could be considered assets to poemhunter
    in any way. You are a disgrace and should be thrown out.
    In fact, any other website with even a modicum of decency or a sense of responsibility would have done so some time ago.

    It is obvious that none of you possess much talents as poets but all of you are full of envy and hatred.And you are all cowards.

    Visiting this site was not the pleasant experience it could and should have been.

    I say again Shame, Shame, Shame.


    Janine M.
