The waters cascading at Lodore are graphically described by Southey by his using words more or less cascading to recreate the feel and atmosphere of the falls.

  • Whoops I think the email went out before I had it ready to go, Sorry, here goes again. Hello Group, Don Blanding makes poetry seem so easy I wanted to try it myself. Does anyone know if Don described anywhere how he goes about it, making it seem to just flow? The few times I have tried it is anything but ease. Anyone out there that learned how to write poetry themselves mind...

  • Hi Curt and thanks for the welcome and the info. I may need a little help contacting Keith Emmons. His email per his website is keith2draw@^$1 but I am not getting a response there. I wonder if he is away for the summer or on vacation. His website is great though. Thanks. And on those references for The Rowdy Duchess, LTS, the dedications, etc, where did you run those? My Emmons...
