The Quill Masters


                                                      Whitman wrote of a great Captain
                                                      Keats Ode A Nightingale
                                                      Frost took The Road Not Taken
                                                      Donne knew For Whom The Bell Tolls
                                                      Thomas raged against The Dying Of The Light
                                                      Like Poe's Raven they are Nevermore,
                                                      But their works live on evermore.

This was stunning! I have not read some of these classics, but I have mad respect for the ones I have delved into. Loved the originality of this and clever wordplay... going straight to my faves!

Oh my goodness! Thank You! I wrote this little thing years ago. These are some of my most favorite poets. I capitalized all the quoted material, so this little piece would not be cluttered with quotation marks. I have full collections of Thomas's and Frost's work. Kim

Hi Kim, i'm not much of a haiku poet. I was happy in supporting Alfred's contest. ~~~ I love the ending, and the quills that have been left behind. What would we be without them. Dylan Tomas and Edgar A Poe.. Robert F... Emily D... the masters in the ring of my mind... xox~ Linda

Mine too Linda! Poe, Thomas, and Frost alone makes you wonder if what we do is more pure gift than acquired talent. Poe was just left of crazy, Thomas was a profound drunk, and Frost endured many painful moments in his life, but never let it come through his work. kim
