    You're welcome

    Interesting poem... I love living in the future figuratively... cheap motels, however, no longer exist.

    Interesting poem. A tailor find. I was wondering when and where Branwell's poems were published. Here some more about him:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Branwell_Bront%C3%AB

    "Under a spreading chestnut-tree" he Village Blacksmith by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
    https://poets.org/poem/village-blacksmith
    "I seemed to have sensed also from an early age that some of my experiences as a reader would change me more as a person than would many an event in the world where I sat and read. "

    Yes and he married again, afterwards. beginning a new life, I think in Ireland. But I never knew or forgot completely that he also wrote poetry. This poem can be found in Cottage Poems which can be downloaded at https://www.gutenberg.org/author/Bront%C3%AB,+Patrick. Maybe they are of interest for your poetry thursdays as they are moral poems, I liked the spider poem.

    Ritual, interesting poem!

    re: Remember the Austrian poet, Dieter M quite well, he was still here when I came to LitNet. But the link you posted opens on his still open profile page.

    Impressive poem! (but I always have to smile at the censorship of the LitNet algorithm.)

    Lol! What did you do to the website? This time the poem appeared(no VPN), on the side of the usual map. Reminded me of the Florida hurricane but in much smaller version. Thanks!

    "by little accurate saints thickly which tread" - e.e. cummings. A very modern poet. Reminds me a bit of Carlos Drummond the Andrade.

    re: True! Didn“t understand the last verse. No cute poems starting with "c" available .

    "Monadnoc From Afar" A somewhat somber poem. Learned what a monadnock is.

    Re: "Monadnoc From Afar"... agree; made a perfect target to mashup for the nonsense thread. I know what a Monadnoc is now too

    Enjoyed Rouen: a somber toned poem too, as it should be in retrospect.
