    The original poem is: -

    A COAT

    I made my song a coat
    Covered with embroideries
    Out of old mythologies
    From heel to throat;
    But the fools caught it,
    Wore it in the world's eyes
    As though they'd wrought it.
    Song, let them take it,
    For there's more enterprise
    In walking naked. (Report) Reply

    Hard to imagine an ebroidered coat, but one can never fault tastes. It is a rather confusing aray of images and sentiments...from mythological past to posts for dogs...I want to say it is a great write, but somehow I'm stuck between verses. A re-write would do it justice, methinks...

    Never mind the rhythm -
    after line ten it doesn't make much sense.
    Is it two poems combined? Or is eleven to twenty-two an aside? (Report) Reply

    Please explain the < on line 11 & 22. When I read the poem those things break up the rhythm. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
