    WS-Born four days before my mother. Loved her subtle poem entwining the ironic narrative about the doe with the narrative about the making of the poem. Found another poem by her:

    WS... "After every war/ someone has to clean up." Good premise for a poem. SJ: Truly a great literary figure. A passionate little poem.

    I must say I haven't read any of Hesse's works, but plan to rectify that omission. The poet written as ephemeral yet the observer of all.

    From: https://books.google.com/books?hl=en...0poems&f=false

    TWO ANTIQUES

    Falling all about her there
    And as fire bursts from char
    Each eye kindle like a star
    When her long lost lamp I bring
    There s such magic in the thing
    From her ashes scattered far
    From her thousand years away
    She comes back to me to day
    Just a little earthen lamp
    Here the oil swam here the wick
    Here the flame went flaring back
    If the bearer turned her quick
    Turned her in the shadowy space
    Saw the flash of one swart face
    Saw the eager arms and hark
    Sprang aside and let the dark
    Blow her out and drown the spark

    II THE TEAR BOTTLE

    HERE a sudden flush of flame
    And here a sheet of azure glory
    Blood red depth and lucid green
    Of seas a stooping storm makes hoary
    Such a blaze sheds no sweet queen
    Jewel eyed by gems attended
    No imperial pearl so fair
    No fire opal half so splendid
    Enchant Me

    Your very being a desire for answer
    Lament not your unassailable mystery
    Enchant me with your dreams

    Howdy siobankelley !

    The rules are on the first posting of this thread here: http://www.online-literature.com/for...sociation-game

    The rules haven't always been adhered to (we've gone off on tangents on occasion), but we try. Lately we've been using literary figures and citing references and linking/citing their works.

    Example: My last writer's name (Harriet Elizabeth Prescott Spofford) started with the letter of the last name of the previous writer (Hesse) so the next name should start with "S" from Spofford

    Join the fun !

    HS-Another one that was overlooked. I became interested in her short stories. A pity this thread is not in alphabetical order. Sometimes one wants to get back to one or other of these poets.

    I've been copying and pasting this game in a word processing program since I started playing so I could easily search to make sure I didn't duplicate a name, to the best of my ability, using Control-F (find) and have used it to go back to check notes. It goes back to May last year and, of course, is in linear time, but notes/citations weren't added till later, and then haphazardly so at first. Currently 254 pages using Times New Roman 12pt (current through 5/6/2017) with lots of white space - yet with lots of superfluousness already removed... but more could be done to clean it up... and then alphabetized... hmmm, a possibility. Just experimented with emailing myself the document in gmail which activates the links and it surprisingly survived... a lot faster in formating... food for thought.

    SS: Very complex character. A warrior pacifist. Love his use of language in his poem.

    Very happy surprise to know that you have made a well cared for copy of the "anthology".You must have worked hard on it. The important thing is that you still will have access to it if something happens to the main one. But I donīt know about alphabetical order. There was a function on the older versions of Word mainly for bibliographical listing. But of late I list them manually, because some times I donīt find it in the new versions. I donīt think it would work with the format of the posts and doing 254 pages! manually would be a very tough job. I intend to copy it too, when the rush of post-doc is over.(July).

    SB: Beautiful rendition of the poem in song. BG: I hadn't heard of cut-ups as shown in the video before. I've used Dada generators and deconstructed poems and quotes using anagram generators, as well as magnetic poetry and the now lost poetry in motion java application (at least I can't find it), but this method is cleaner, quicker, and less taxing... and no less creative to my mind. I admire his innovative style.

    GN-Very interesting Ekphrasis. The poem confers the painting a life of its own. And the Montage of the parts makes the poem seem complete.In fact the cut-up seems to be a type of Montage. I donīt know these other deconstruction methods you mention.

    F: "The Lord of the Word". Wrote the Persian epic. Could have possibly been the most rewarded poet of all recorded time... pity. I'm still dissecting the poem to get the full import behind it using colored highlights and shadings, etc. to unentangle my mind.
