if you demand on the one hand, the raw material of poetry in all its rawness and that which is on the other hand genuine, you are interested in poetry. Lovely poem shared. Thanks poet.

school-books'; all these phenomena are important. One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, A beautiful and brilliant poem with an honest appraisal of poets and poetry. What we like and what we dislike...........A distinction has to be made! Great poem by Marianne Moore

Poetry is a genuine expression of what the poet sees and feels about the things he understand. Great insightful poem.

I hope that, if I'm not already a Literalist of the Imagination who can present Imaginary Gardens with real toads in them, that at least I'm well on my way to becoming one!

Poets and their writing nicely defined according to their real value and merits. Thanks, Marianne. we.... do not admire what.... we cannot understand: by half poets, the.... result is not poetry, nor till the poets among us can be 'literalists of.... the imagination'.... above insolence and triviality

I think this poem is saying realize that you will not always understand the poet or the stanzas but that there is a true sparkle behind both of them.

This poem is extremely moving to those who see poetry as a way of life; something ethereal and genuine, one of the same
