    It was good to read your poem about Thomas Chatterton, despite his amazing talent he is not known by many people. I would be interested to know how he came to your attention and what prompted you to write this poem?

    I enjoyed readng your poems and I admire your skill and mastery of the art of poetry, having your own unique style. You write clearly and make your point without the prolixity of other poets, that so often leaves the reader lost in a literary maze. You have class, depth, profound content in your poetry, and your writing
    is amazingly creative.

    I take trouble with all of my poetry, and if you read 'Buzzard' again properly you will see that I have not confused the buzzard with some other bird. The poem is accurate in every respect and I trust you will be a little more careful when you try to be an expert.
    The buzzard does kill prey in the manner described in the poem, and yes I know he is a lazy bird, but he is not that lazy.

Women's Hats

Why doesn't a woman wear a hat?

On the wall, closet or shelf
A man has hats to please himself.
And on the occasion make a statement.
His hat, a personal embellishment.

But a lady, woman, girl or princess
Never (or almost never) , a hat covers her tresses,
Venturing out, for all to see,
She wants others to "look at me."

Hours spent to get hair just right,
But never a thought of a hat sitting tight.
Shoes, belt, watch, jewelry aplenty
Yet no hat to top the assembly.

Dior, Lauren, Kroell, Gucci, Barneys, Netaporter, ...

On Being There*

The senses awaken,
Six in all to be taken.
In the first burst of light
On the screen; dim then bright
A pattern, at first lost in the maze
Escapes as from a hidden cave.
Sound emerges, then drives
The artist's inner muses.
