    A: Party animal. "The US national anthem, "The Star Spangled Banner", is set to the tune of "The Anacreontic Song""... truly ? Incredible the influence he has had throughout the ages. Cute poem with a nice western couplet rhyme scheme with enjambment preceding S2.

    A:Astonished that the music of this bachian character was used for "The Star Spangled Banner".
    NR-I liked the flow of the poem.

    ANGLE OF VISION

    By Robert Rendall

    But John, have you seen the world, said he,

    Trains and tramcars and sixty-seaters,

    Cities in lands across the sea -

    Giotto's tower and the dome of St Peter's?

    No, but I've seen the arc of the earth,

    From the Birsay shore, like the edge of a planet,

    And the lifeboat plunge through the Pentland Firth

    To a cosmic tide with the men that man it.

    RR: Poet and naturalist... a wonderful combination. An Orkney man through and through as the poem above depicts.

    RA-Another survivor, a very troubled life. A beautiful poem, she must have suffered a lot with the long illness of her mother. A poetry of earch of identity, even linguistic identity:

    RA: Enjoyed the English translation of "Mother Tongue"... seems close in translation. AAA: Not familiar with Catalan... hoping the translation is true.

    AAA-Don´t know Catalan either. But I liked some of the translations of this site.
    AL- Impressive biography. The last stanza of the poem is intriguing.

    LT: "Music in the soul can be heard by the universe." LT's existence may be historically ambiguous but the tradition of teachings attributed to him transcend.

    LT-I like the idea of various Lao-Tzes.
    TC-Poem sounds modern for the Renaissance.

    BA: Love her photography of New York.
    I had my own photography dark room/enlarger/chem setup (I still remember the smell (yuk)) circa '72-'73 in my apartment...
    gave it up when I needed a roommate. I still have my Konica C35 camera (haven't used it since really) and my Kodak Brownie (very dusty !!) but no prints survive (sigh).
    I like her portraits the best; so intimate... James Joyce looks like he aged a decade in two years. "The world doesn't like independent women, why, I don't know, but I don't care."... delightful. And a poem ! http://brooklynrail.org/2015/11/verb...erenice-abbott

    BA-Nice poem, Good find, I searched a bit, but didn´t find anything.
    I love photography too(hate selfies though) but I am a bad photographer. Also kept the old cameras for a long time. I have a Casio now, but still have to learn how to use it ideally.
    AWS-Nice poem, but unable to detect influence of CB

    ST: Hard to find more information on him in English. I would have called the poem "Food For Thought" in its English form. Not knowing the context allowed me to think back on the story my Mother told me upon her arrival from England to NY, uprooted as a teen shortly after WWII, taken away from her Father... faced with, for her, what was an excess of food at a buffet after settling in her hotel with her Mother before leaving for Arizona for a life with her new step-father... The last lines come alive for me: " – You feel, and feel it with growing certainty, that you would rather be at home. The only trouble is you were told (not leaving the tiniest room for doubt) that you are at home."

    ST: Didn´t find anything either. The bios of living poets often resemble CV's. No personal info.
    But as you say yourself, once a poem is released it belongs to the reader. Your beautiful association gave a deeper meaning to a poem, which, at first sight described the hustle around a holyday buffet. I didn´t find any personal information about the poet, but I found this:https://fee.org/articles/a-peek-behi...-iron-curtain/.
    Whatever his current position in life, this poet certainly hasn´t known affluence during his childhood in communist Hungary. In this sense he may be as much a war child as your mother. Who knows what kind of memories are behind this poems?
    I found your title very suggestive!


    TM:Another fighter. Much solitude. Interesting imags but found the last line of the poem a bit lame.

    MM: " she hopes for poets who can produce "imaginary gardens with real toads in them" ".
    I came across this quote nearly 6-years after I had written "Beneath the Dogwoods of May" (5/1/2010 r. 1/29/2011) and wrote
    an addendum to the fact on 3/8/2016 on my webpage... so I guess I fulfilled her hope in my case
    "... The deepest feeling always shows itself in silence; not in silence, but restraint." - so true.
