Keep It Simple

Tho' some of my poetry may be a tad avant garde,

   And 'tis fer dang sure I'll ne'er be a renowned bard,

      But I try to concoct stuff that is original and creative,

         That can be understood by the most untutored native!

            Some verse I read leaves me scratchin' my head,

               Tryin' to figger out what the composer said!

    Well done Robert. I think it would have been better if it ended with "had said" than just "said" for better rhythm. I like that it's short and sweet with a simple message. Great to read. Thanks and have a great day.

    Hear! Hear! though I am occasionally guilty of going against your counsel. Big or unfamiliar words do not necessarily make for obscruity. Keep writing as you have been and we'll keep reading you. Thanks for the stop by./ M

    Well said. We're definitely for lucidity in poetry. When I find an obscure poem, I stop reading. At our age, don't have time to waste. Hubby served in the Air Force too. We retired many years ago.

    Well and succinctly (hope that's not too complicated a word -- lol) put!

    G'day Robert... Well said and taken with a grin Robert. Some poets and all politicians must be joined at the hip. Thanks mate - Lindsay

    LOL You and me both Bob - I all for learning new things but I find it most off-putting when I have to get a dictionary out to simply understand a poem. I can really relate to your clever words - a 7 from me:-) Hugs Jan xx
