Ode To Sylvia Plath - Poem by Seán O Muiríosa

Painful star of poetry;
Misery disguised,
Misery unleashed;
Ending in an oven.
Beautiful misery,
Beautiful star,
Guide me.

    You mix beauty and tragedy so sympathetically, Sean. Good write. And thanks for your comment on 'Your Voice'. Warm regards, Gina. (Report) Reply

    Sylvia Plath's work is- whether you like it or not- very interesting to dissect. What you do so well is to sum up the duality of her character, the misery, the beauty etc. and you keep it short- hence making real impact. I loved the repetition of words from start to finish. Well done.
