    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.

Best Poem of Sidi J. Mahtrow

reiterative Poetry

Reiterative poetry it seems proper to say
Has seen little sunlight in present day.
Yet it represents in all regard,
The beginning as English language broached forward.

Base on Anglo Saxon and Anglo Norman tongues
Reiterative poetry sloughed reluctantly along
Combining words in ways most proper
And in some case, crudely brought to halt, a stopper.

Meanings lost or lesser known,
Words and spellings made to fit the event reported on.
Such it is that Piers Plowman was written
By William Langland and others(?) too, in 1462.

Reiterative simply means...

Ode To Old Blue

At the honky-tonk outside of town
A bit off the gravel driveway
You see Old Blue hangin round
Just standing there, thata way.

Old Blue was hard, you got the feel.
When you first saw her
You thought of cold blue steel.
She had a heavy rear end, yes-sir.
