    Suze Collette, I cant click on them either. This is b/c if they provide the text, PoemHunter could face copyright issues. It pissed me off too.

    Here we sit at our desks; I'm sure Plath would have descibed us as having a bowl of peanuts beside us.

    Such rage, such sudden insights are not seen in many. She was unique.

    No poet ever dies. You are the best example.

  • Suze Collett (4/29/2012 10:16:00 PM)

    I'm unable to access any of her poems, the links appear dead at this moment. Has their been a dispute in sharing her poetry on here, or this is a temporary technical glitch?

    I have been a SylviaPlath fan since I was a teen. I still love her, and am amazed with her talent. Some say she did not get treatment bc it might have diluted her talent...sad. Very sad end to a brillaint woman. A real loss.

Gold Mouths Cry

Gold mouths cry with the green young
certainty of the bronze boy
remembering a thousand autumns
and how a hundred thousand leaves
came sliding down his shoulder blades
persuaded by his bronze heroic reason.
We ignore the coming doom of gold
and we are glad in this bright metal season.
Even the dead laugh among the goldenrod.
