Hello, I am a seventh grade teacher, who would like your permission to photocopy your poem for use in my classroom. Students will compare and contrast the speaker in your poem with the character in a short story. Please grant your permission.
Kelly Seale is a sensitive artist. Two major features of his writing style are to be menntioned:
1: the selection of titles
2: the handling of metaphor is neat.
A rose by anyother name is a beautiful poem on his credit.
Good poetry! ! !
Kellys poetry never fails to inspire awe. The reader can see the twinkle in his eye as his words sparke in their minds eye. He's also a bit of a wild card so you can't help gravitating toward the 'rush' of his words. Other times his words are so softly encouraging and tender, that you feel as if the writer were caressing your hand, or you become a child and experience him gently wiping away tears. Kelly bears the mark of a true poet.
I am a writer. I get weak-kneed with prose, and I crave other's words of heart. Pages and poets, painter's and their canvas cocktails, singer's and their sultry songs, you own my soul. Take me with you my muse, on your whirlwind tour
