AS USUAL" indeed my prosaic pal! But of course you didn't like the first few stanzas. The only fodder I failed to serve up to you was a jumbo plate of rhyme! HaH! Hey, to each his own, my friend...I don't want to get into specifics, as (like you said) I should not have to defend my own poetry...and I agree with you....I will say this, however...Infelicitiy
infers that the words/phrases you specified were" inapropriate" to the work, or that part of the work. If the words/phrases were clicheish, or over-reaching, I could understand your comment. I found them to be both apropos and effective to the theme of the work...Thanks for the read and your input, but only because I appreciate it!
The work is not yet to my total satisfaction, as I was telling Lamont...In fact, since posting this last night, I have again revised it, but it's not yet ready for prime time. This one was not either, however I wanted reaction and honest critique, and I am thankful for all who responded...EVEN YOU, , J.C.....So much for not defending my work again, right?! Just like a liberal to suck hubris from a modest Conservative who simply enjoys poetry and tea in the eve....Be well, my friend... ~Frank~
