Comments about Douglas Scotney

  • Michael Walker (2/27/2018 8:50:00 PM)

    A prolific poet who is transforming himself in ideas and forms. Not one for the long poem, he keeps to
    shorter poems that make the reader really think about the meaning. Has a deep knowledge of cricket and writes very good poems about the sport, but not too many. In fact, Doug has a wide and comprehensive number of topics to write about.

2014 Poet Wishes

2 actually.

For 2014
I would share the wish
that what happens
happens out of care

and wish
that bad and good make room
for greatness
as their heir.

Consolation

We knew not on Aonian mount
The outskirts of pollution,
Needed not then, I know need now,
A negative solution.

Purge thyself of thy love, dear Lamb,
Make poetry of thy hate,
Kow tow to those above, dear Lamb,
Ain't genius rules your fate.

(Charles Lamb considered giving up writing poetry
Coleridge replied)
