........ On Poetry

Such princely and linguistic feats
As penned by Shelley, Byron, Keats
Though rich and eloquently grand
Are oft` too deep to understand

Their thoughts expressed through poetry
In prose or perfect symmetry
Bewilder yet this humble mind
Their meaning, hidden, still to find

So if ungilded words convey
Each message that they would portray
Then simple verses should reveal
The inspiration that I feel

And thus may every scholar read
Between each line, their hearts to feed,
Unfolding there in simple style
This heart`s endeavour to beguile

    Your poem raises a vexed question concerning the sheer difficulty of understanding the preliminary, surface meaning, much less symbolic, psychological, mythic levels, of many poems. However, I just keep reading and re-reading and do not surrender. There are still passages in Shelley, a favorite of mine, I do not understand. Someday I might. In the meantime, I stay close to the poet by staying close to the words. Your approach is also fruitful. You wrote a poem about opaque poems in language that is simple and direct and thoroughly satisfying.

    Of men and rats and mice and men
    Then there's a woman named Dohren
    The words of Valerie are ours
    Before the canon ball devours
    I've come to grips with bloods and crips
    Of every poison gauntlet sips
    From the un to the Romantic
    From the Gulf or the Atlantic
    I've sufficed my appetites
    Over lunch and satellites
    While the words we weave will woe
    Silent kept shall overthrow
    May we never be redundant
    While our Dohren is abundant.

    Nicely done. It's a neat though writing about the writing styles of poets in a poem used with your own style that echoes theirs I can dig that. =)

  • Thomas Vaughan Jones (1/27/2014 3:35:00 PM)

    Our Romantic Poets wrote sublimely. Like this :)

    Wow, really neat! I loved it. You have the gift!

    If you find the time, check out my poem with the same title.

    Keats is my favorite poet of all time. His greatness comes not only through his poetry (there are some of his poems I'm not too crazy about) , but his comments on poetry contained in letters he wrote to friends and family. Thanks again. Ciao!

    (I re-sent this comment because I wanted to clarify the first message and correct a couple of typos. I detest the comment submission procedure on this site - especially the number of wrong verification code flags even when there's a correct match of those numbers!)
