I find I cannot do without poetry . . . I began with a little, but habit has made me a leviathan.”                                                                     John Keats

A nineteenth-century romantic poet trying to get by in the 21st-century. I prefer the Romantic Poets (Shelley, Keats, and Byron), nib pens, candlelight, waistcoats, and pocket watches.

All original poems posted are mine and are copyrighted.

Gentle Reader, thank you for stopping by.

    Out of curiosity, have you ever read Carson McCullers’s The Heart is a Lonely Hunter or Bread Givers by Anzia Yezierska? I think you might like them. I discovered your poems tacked up on the bulletin board outside of the Library. I liked your poem Pauper’s Soul so much I sort of stole it from the bulletin. Sorry…

    • Hi Ellie
      Thanks for getting in touch about the poems. I have read and love The Heart is a Lonely Hunter. The 1968 movie adaptation starring Alan Arkin still lingers in my memory to this day. I will add Bread Givers to my ever-growing reading list.
      I thought someone from the library had removed the poem for violation of kiosk etiquette. I am glad to know you liked it enough to take it with you. I am hoping other students (yourself included?) will begin posting their poems there.
      I fixed my semicolons and re-arranged a line on The Pauper’s Soul on this site. PM
