then why is there no original poetry here? I’ve decided for a number of reasons not to post any more of my old poems on Robert Frost’s Banjo. The reasons for this decision are complicated & private, but I can assure you that the decision wasn’t impulsive, but only reached after due deliberation. I can also assure you that the positive & enthusiastic responses I’ve received from folks with pretty diverse backgrounds has been a very uplifting experience, & I so much appreciate all the wonderful feedback you’ve left about these old poems.
The next time the poetry bug bites me in whatever present that may be, I’m confident that Robert Frost’s Banjo readers will be among the very first to see any new poetic productions. Anyone who’d like to read more of my earlier work can find links to pretty much all of it at the following link. As far as the 1996 Fold-Out Postcard Sonnets go, I apologize for interrupting the sequence. You can find a link to them at the link above, or you can go to them more directly here. The Past Poeticizing link about halfway down the page here in the left frame also will take you to my main poetry page. I would note that while I was preparing a manuscript for possible publication earlier this year, I tweaked several small things in the texts, as well as corrected a few typos. Theses haven’t been corrected on the web pages, however.
Although there’s no poem today on Robert Frost’s Banjo, you should be able to find Original Poetry Sunday participants at the following pages (based on previous weeks’ participation):
Amazing Voyages of the Turtle
Poetikat’s Invisible Keepsakes
Secret Poems from the Times Literary Supplement
Please chek them out—they’re all talented writers with diverse poetic visions. I’ll be posting a bit less “newsy” later on today, so check in this afternoon if you have a moment.
