Sometimes with the one I love I fill myself with rage for fear
I effuse unreturn'd love,
But now I think there is no unreturn'd love, the pay is cer-
tain one way or another,
(I loved a certain person ardently and my love was not
return'd.
Yet out of that I have written these songs.)

Walt Whitman

Well, you took so long to come home To my suburbia amongst the cliffs, That I decid e d to become drunken beyond Reckoning, Out amidst the j u need cars. Now just you look at this beautiful girl Beaten beyond reckoning. Do you Know her, well you say you do. Save her and lie her in The beautiful house between He trees. If you say you do. It is all you are.

From what minescule fragments of a stockpile of poetic brilliance, I am completely blown away by Mr. Rorabeck's work. From his style and influences to his timing, rhythm, etc...I hope he never ceases this archaic and timeless craft. POETRY LIVES! !

I believe Bret is a very good poet. He seems to know what it takes to be a good poet. His rime and rhythm is evenly matched, and he knows how to convey his message in his poem. His poetry is flowing and soothing to the ear. He is one of the best modern poets on this site.
