With Annie gone,

with the morning sun?

A short poem, that still has emotional depth and density. To compare Annie with the morning sun is a super image.

I love short poems. One of my favorites is WC Williams This is Just to Say. This poem is its mirror, except it deals with emotions and not a physical sensation like taste - so much harder, deeper, insightful subject matter, so much harder to get it RIGHT. This poem is a joy despite its quality of longing.

Three exclamation points to celebrate the death of the narrator's love interest. You must be a callous fool and complete ignoramus incapable of reading, let alone feelings of compassion.

Love is what makes one perfect and more so in a romantic relationship. This poem is unique where one of the partners is no more but the sentiments remain. Extremely heart-touching and poignant. Thanks.

Touched. When the beloved is gone, we compare many things that we did not notice when she was around.

There's a lot to be said for short poems. Leonard is my inspiration.
