*I am English and began writing poetry at the turn of this century.My early interest was in short forms,.I created and promoted quite a few here on PS (perhaps my best known is the Footle).With encouragement from a member here I moved onto to longer forms,publishing my poetry in print,blog ,and twitter .I came to conclude that all poetry is structured prose and remains a work in progress until recited aloud, (the apex of our art form) when a unique experience 'an as is moment' occurs between voice and ear, much the same as the experience that happens when viewing a work of art? (se my art portfolio links below to experience this phenomenom)

**Check out my 'youtube clip recited aloud  poems'  on my youtube channel(entered as ichthyschiro) some of which include a sample  from  my arwork catalog

A thing of beauty is a joy forever...a clip from the pen of Keats

Beautiful clip, Brian. What amazes me is that Keats' "Endymion" received sharp criticism after its release. Even the great poets couldn't catch a break at times :) FYI- Thanks for commenting on my World Cup post. Lol... After listening to your Keats clip and rising to the heights as it were, I feel somewhat insignificant talking about the World Cup :) But there's room for it all, yeah?
