- Dec 27, 2007Hello Jill Pond,
And thanks for giving a group jag. I am off line for a week and when I get back on, there is a Blessing of E.mails from the group. (I don't know the collective noun for e.mails). Jill, you have galvanised us back to the keyboard again, and the poetry of Ms. Plath.
I took to Emerson like a duck to ballet dancing and, as I read poetry for purely pleasure and not in pursuit of Academic excellence, I found Emerson too, too black. Ah! But Ms Plath is a poetess I find mesmerising and as regards her work..
I cannot love her poetry more, I don't know how,
Nor do I possess the eloquence to sing her praise.
I can but lament her premature demise and wish,
With all my heart, that I had seen and said
That my bee gauntlets were like white lilies.
Keep stirring the pot Jill, Regards Des blair
