    RWE: Incredible article... "I am God / in nature; I am a weed by the wall."...

    From Wikipedia: "The Poet (essay): For poetry was all written before time was, and whenever we are so finely organized that we can penetrate into that region where the air is music, we hear those primal warblings, and attempt to write them down, but we lose ever and anon a word, or a verse, and substitute something of our own, and thus miswrite the poem. The men of more delicate ear write down these cadences more faithfully, and these transcripts, though imperfect, become the songs of the nations."... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Poet_(essay)

    John Muir on Emerson: “Emerson was the most serene, majestic, sequoia-like soul I ever met. His smile was as sweet and calm as morning light on Mountains. There was a wonderful charm in his presence; his smile, serene eye, his voice, his manner, were all sensed at once by everybody. I felt here was a man I had been seeking. There Sierra, I was sure, wanted to see him, and he must not go before gathering them an interview! A tremendous sincerity was his. He was as sincere as the trees, his eye sincere as the sun.”... https://www.ralphwaldoemersonhouse.org/blog-travel

    RWE-A very poetic essay about poetry. John Muir's comment is also a poem in prose.

    Thanks also for the helpful analysis. I didn't know there was a rivalry between two poets.
    I prefer Wollaston's translation of Petrarch.

    Enjoyed this analysis. Very much to the point. I hope (ai) doesn´t mean that the analysis was done by AI.

    Spring and Fall Great poem, enjoyed both analyses doing justice to the delicate themes.

    Enjoyed the Sandburg poem analysis!

    I have the feeling that 18 century verse is very disciplined even when depicting passion or grief.

    A wonderful poem is this one by Lu Xun. How moral aspects are presented with charm. And J.E. Kowallis' translation and presentation are a work of love!

    re:"Brave Young Lady" - nor could I, nor anything definitive about the poet other than poetry and an active status. Did find an eye raiser dated to 1951 that was rather amusing about a woman who received a divorce because her husband would read Shakespeare aloud, lol.

    The well: "And blest is he who on his way / That fount of healing findeth!" Interesting how the holy font is now "Within, a Druid's mound is seen, / Set round with stony warders;" Enjoyed
