W.B. Hahaha! The Billy Collins reviews.

Right down the board.

I am saving him for my dotage.

Somehow, I think his writing will be greatly improved then.

Sandi What is the new sentence about? I have been reading predominately nonfiction b/c of concentration issues. It helps me keep my focus.

I looked at your site and it's very nice, I plan to look around it more in the next couple of weeks. Poetry fascinates me. I have committed to memory some children's poems from my childhood. At one time I could recite the raven, the duel and the highwayman. that was a long time ago. Now I restrict myslef to journalling, which, while it can be a bit droll, it's far safer.

I could also introduce you to a few poets I know if you were interested. Good luck and I look forward to getting to know you.

Daniel Ron, we had poetry long before we had writing simply because these lengthy ballards with their rhymes could be memorized better and withstood centuries of being handed down far better than tales without rhythm. Good luck in the book world.
