There once was a lady named Wanda.
Whose friends at the forum were fond a.

She liked to drink rye,
and watch the aurora's in the sky.

While the mysteries of life she did pond a.

Poetry will never die, but it is too often "abused" and therefore ends up meaning less than it used to. I am a published poet, but only write when I am "inspired", either by a woman or by life. I write when I am happy, sad, angry, miserable etc, inspired by life, love, pain, death, anger. Hence most of my poetry is very dark.

Are we so caught up with the practical and common, that Prose no longer entices our longing for passion and romance? Has symbolism of the rose gone by the wayside?


Definately NOT! The most memorable letter I ever received on a dating site...this one actually came from a gentleman who said he knew there was nothing that would set him apart from all the others, yet he would send his soul in poetry and he did. I immediately responded and we wrote for quite some time. I still chat with him from time to time.

Personally, I love poetry and romantic gestures AND gentlemanly manners.

Apparently answering the question is now considered chatting?

Sorry Spongecakes,

It was late, and I think there were only three of us here. We needed some poetic stimulation and conversation.

At least I put a smile on Wanda's face. See what poetry can do for a person? That's a good thing. Maybe it isn't so dead after all.

Basically all I said was that it wasn't dead but apperently somebody didn't like that on topic answer.

Need some consistency.

Where's your previous answer? I thought I had seen one last night. Am I out of my tree?

Sorry. I thought you meant my chatting with the girls. I'm confused again. So what else is new???

I read your blog. You should turn it into a book. Maybe you should post some poetry there too.

Did you read my recent one? Crack-up! I got a second email afterwards, re: my mom. You'll know what I mean, after you read it. Hysterical!

Ash, and anyone else who's interested: the Academy of American Poets has a great site, with hundreds of poets' works, bios, even live recorded readings on mp3. It's a great place to nose around if you're bored. www.poets.org

Poetry is not dead, It's just not on the surface. When poetry dies, so will music !

Here is a child's poem I wrote to share with my friends...

O' Little Ones

The strong uphold the weakest ones
A young child holds tightly grace
And rocks gently in soft loving arms
Life's burdens from an elders' face.

A clutched bouquet, the flowers scent
Swiftly carried by small tattered shoes
Then knocks upon an unknown door
With smiling eyes hold reflected hues.

Youth does question why no answers here
Then falls asleep upon warm feathered seams
O' little ones, such innocent world so pure
Forever guards hushly those childhood dreams.

I have a poem that i want to share with you !

As I kissed her lips,
She twitched her legs,
and broke my glasses.

I hope that people do not find poetry to be dead because I recently had a poetry book published. I am hoping that the romantic side of individuals prevails and my work is able to touch many.

No matter where you find the poetry, Happy Reading!

Boy Silver,

Did you really have to follow Angel's sweet poem with a complete opposite?

You are naughty.

Angel N,

From the responses to this thread, it appears your poetry book will do just fine.

May I whine just a little? I promise it'll be quick...

If you're really interested in keeping poetry alive, go to B&N and buy a new book of poetry by a living poet! We're starving out here, people...

Of course, you could cut out the middleman, and just send a box of steaks.
