Walt Martin is one of the most authentically talented poets I have encountered on this site. He is a craftsman of the first order who takes the greatest pride in his work. My best guess is that it doesn't get posted until it's received the full treatment: the most exacting care over words, phrasing, metre, and rhyme forms of every description. The content is usually weighty and its treatment displays a fine balance between high intellect, and emotional depth and maturity. As of this comment he has posted only seven poems, but I suspect there is a considerable hinterland of work filed away somewhere, and hopefully some of it will be posted soon.
