    re: Enjoyed both analysis very much, specially the one about "Dream Variations".It occurred to me that flinging the arms about the body has also to do with they being unfettered.

    "A Bride"- Enjoyed!

    Just now I read Schillerīs short play. I had a selection of his works in three volumes, but never knew about this one. I didnīt compare it with the original but the translation flows well and reproduces Schillerīs highly dramatic style.

    I too have a new tablet underpowered for poetry creation though, so I'll leave that to the laptop.

    Tablet: A Samsung 12,4 big (birthday present). Have still to organize a line up for alphabetical poems. Then I will try to use it also in the evening with its two browsers.

    "Dream with Clam-Diggers..." A good but dark poem.
