    Thanks, tailor! Yes I think so too, because in the Google selection, the beginning of the poems appear!
    Long Grass...a very bucolic poem, one needs these respites!

    Intriguing poem... did some quick study on Turgeniev and after a read or two found some more of his short story/prose/poems here of all places: http://www.online-literature.com/turgenev/2707/

    Thanks for the Turgeniev link. I have read some of his short stories but I didnīt know he was also a poet.
    Enjoyed the climate change poem, ha,ha!

    A curious poem: "All those times I was bored". Bored by Margaret Atwood

    re: Bored .Thanks for the interesting analysis. What got me is how the feeling expressed in the poem went against the title. As we would say in Brazil, the narrator "was happy and didnīt know it".

    Enjoyed Area Boys light irreverence. And the author adhered to our occasional esthetical mean :
    to three generation base-/ment epithets we remain.

    Enjoyed the modern river poem by Bonnie Mannion. Thanks for seeking the authors page, tailor ( I stand rebuked) as the poetry atlas works here only as atlas.

    Explored this poetīs page "Every newborn"- What Every Newborn Knows also by Bonnie Manion

    Interesting. The poem itself is a flood of words.

    Enjoyed his dialectic tone, it's something I try to convey with much less effect in my few dialectical poems. Such a promising career cut short through disease.

    Delightful poem I once had dinner at my old Bishop's home, a finer dinner than I'd had in quite a while, when someone remarked that I shouldn't eat the plate's decoration (lol).

    Touching poem. Our Monday evening FHE group and Sunday School is studying the Old Testament this year and we're in the middle of the Books of Psalms, so this poem is quite timely
