I'd like to write - like grown-up poets do:
with similes that span the universe,
that sparkle, crackle, dazzle, woo the mind;
and touch the heart with tender, swoony verse...

I'd like to write - like grown-up poets do:
in literature that's all the better for
those soaring, parabolic parables
and paradigms, and rhymes, and metaphor...

I'd like to write - like no-one else has done:

Your wish has come true for you already write as grown-up poets do, cascading, as you do, lots of small lamps, and in cupped hands too. Bless you. Fay

I don't need to tell you, you do write poetry like a grown up, but make me feel highly inadequate in the process! Drat! Wish I had not read this now, or voted a ten! I take it all back! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! Peace, Aisha

First poem of yours I've read. I think of you as a kind of guardian angel for this site...your comments and your poems are so prolific. But I've 'had promises to keep' and haven't oft gotten to these pages to read. I find this poem lovely, the sentiment is fine, and it works well and is quite nicely expressed in the sonnet form you chose.

Your sonnets are wonderful. Of course there are people who will dismiss them as 'not modern poetry', but what do they know? Do you know Peter Russell's sonnets, by the way?
