    • POEM: But If A Living Dance Upon Dead Minds by Edward Estlin Cummings (11/17/2006 6:20:00 PM)

      This is a breathless perception of love's opinion of its self, and an indictment of those who take love for granted, delivered in magical time-space by this mystic poet.

    • POEM: So We'Ll Go No More A-Roving by George Gordon Byron (11/17/2006 6:03:00 PM)

      Over analysis of the meaning robs us of the music of the words:

      For the sword outwears its sheath,
      And the soul outwears the breast,
      And the heart must pause to breathe,
      And love itself have rest.

      That stanza alone explains the poem and most beautifully reveals the plight of the lover, all intense lovers. I marvel at the poet's ability to express in four short lines the sad plight of a romance exhausted, where it tskes so many others so many words to say the same thing.
