I wrote this earlier in the year, and I am quite proud of it. I think the inspiration for it was a dream (hence the title), but I don't really remember.

(Ignore the offer of a free laptop, and click on some of the short poems of 'The Belle of Amherst'.)

smiley - laugh Oh, sure. Since she's a US poet, no reason for you to have heard of her.

In the US, of course, nobody gets through school without reading at least 'Because I Could Not Stop for Death'.smiley - winkeye

I think you should be proud of it too. It's got an olde worlde style about it (like Ms Dickenson indeed), but still feels fresh. Do keep sharing, I for one am enjoying a new voice in the AWW smiley - ok

I'd recommend reading some more Dickenson too, along with Poe, Tennyson and some Walt Whitman smiley - smiley

I second that motion, but can I toss in e.e.cummings, a personal favourite? (Also a Yank.)

smiley - run to have a quick peek at your Beta stuff.

Tav did tell me on Halloween there was sure to be some good surprises and lots of fun, but unfortunately I never managed to go to Beta world.

Any chance you could tell me which messages to look at (I could do with cheering upsmiley - smiley)

It's good to see some real rhyming poetry for once. I particularly liked 'darkened eye'. It did remind me a bit of The walrus and the Carpenter, though!
