    Thank you, that's kind.

    I do not expect Apollinaire has that effect on heterosexual males, no.

    :) I liked Autumn Sonnet, I like the fact that the form is subverted with the off-beat rhythm. I find personally that the rhythm is the thing and much more powerful than rhyme in all things.... anyway, nice.

Best Poem of Jon Lloyd

How Much Do I Love You?

'How much do I love you? '
I ask myself again.
All the way to Jupiter,
And half-way back again,
And then around the Milky Way,
Then round just like before.
From Birmingham to Blackpool
And multiply by four.

THAT much (plus a bit!)

Shallow Beauty

It's unlikely but true -
Your physical attraction
Entertains me
On so many levels.

Your voice as smooth as slate
But subtle - soft and subtle -
And untarnished by locality
Draws my soul.
