'The Coming Of The Poem -
A poem has got to be born
It cannot come out when you want it to;
It must be born.
When you want to make a poem you cannot make it,
But when you do not want to make it, it comes.'
- By Gillian Hughes, aged 8.
From 'Those First Affections, an anthology of poems composed between the ages of two and eight.'

'Beginning my studies the first step pleas'd me so much,
I have hardly gone and hardly wish'd to go any further,
But stop and loiter all the time to sing it in ecstatic songs.' - Walt Whitman.

How about this poem after the words arrangement?
A Morning Fog
This morning see the whole sky
In the morning light is fully white.
Covers the harbors where are unseen.
I see over San Francisco and Oakland.
This includes 100 miles of the areas.
This white light blocks the air-ports.
The light is too bright stimulates eyes.
No body can see clearly before sun rises...
My wife and I went down to Starbucks
When return back...
The fog begins gradually lost in the sun.
Many people are living in the fog lives.
They don’t understand their ways to run.
They seem are driving in five miles fog.
I get to see the fog as a good reminder.

Hello Dear Poets/Readers,
I have a few new poems up and if you had time, if it interest you do you mind reading one (or more if you choose) and giving me some feedback on it. Thank you so much in advance. My link is: http: //www.poemhunter.com/ashley-ormon/
Also one more things to say, does anyone know of good publishers to work with if you are considering writing poetry. You may write your respond on here and/or message me personally. Thank you.

Regarding poetry, its better if members post their own feeling without quoting others.Just say, what makes you to compose or to think.How you select words and how you frame your thought.

Very simple thing is that poetry is not prose. To write a prose writer can plan what to write and what not to write. But a poem comes from an unknown destiny and the poet starts composing ignoring time and place. I do not compose poetry on my own.An invisible being whispers me and my hand pics up a pen to follow the dictation. So I am not a poet by choice or at my own will.

One by Yeats that identifies a significant poetic principle - and much more besides:

Looking for another Publisher. Rather then going through all of the poet bios. I thought I would ask if anyone knows of one that is good to work with that maybe they are with or know of.
