    Thanks for the link on The Lake, tailor. I think though that there is more to it. "Months have passed since, well,
    everything." The poem doesn´t reveal, what this everything is, but it may be the clue of the poem. It may represent a general event like a flood, for example, or a personal experience of the "I" of the poem.

    Sonnet XXXIII by Petrarca. I have the feeling that the second translation is more faithful to the original

    Including "U". "Under a daisied bank". The Milkmaid by Thomas Hardy

    oops...

    "the milk purrs in the pail" Quite poetic ! I looked for an analysis and got sidetracked; found a short story by Hardy, The Romantic Adventures of a Milkmaid, on Project Gutenberg which in the reading I thought might answer a question or two. A delightful read - it did enlighten me perhaps.

    re: Going to look for the short story !

    Lorca is one of mY favorite poets. I like his dramatic intensity, which is a bit less visible in the translation

    Found this charming analysis of the poem:

    re: Lorca - Wonderful analysis ! I hadn't considered the second interpretation at all... a very deep poem.

    re: Football - Interesting life and war story woven around a football metaphor... enjoyed.

    "Zero things come to mind." Curious poem. You always manage to find new "Z" poems.

    "At five in the afternoon." From Lament for Ignacio Sánchez Mejías by Lorca (it´s about the death of a famous bull fighter. I usually wouldn´t chose a poem about bullfight, but it is Lorca at his most dramatic).

    Interesting wikipedia article. A series of unfortunate events including not utilizing the WMD of the day by the protagonists... a bloody mess.

    A Word Can poem I wrote that is yet unedited and untitled from yesterday's Thursdays at Two poetry group using the words kitty-corner/shallow/bury/bunk/invoke/indigenous:

    yet untitled

    invocations for the indiginous peoples
    I dream snug in my bunkbed
    kitty-corner to a western tableau
    yet too shallow to muffle their cries

    re: "Woodcut... " In my attempt to find the original German version (to see the original rhyme scheme) I found this addendum to the poem:
    [I feel considerable hesitation in venturing to offer this version of a poem which Carlyle describes to be 'a beautiful piece (a very Hans Sacks beatified, both in character and style), which we wish there was any possibility of translating.' The reader will be aware that Hans Sachs was the celebrated Minstrel- Cobbler of Nuremberg, who Wrote 208 plays, 1700 comic tales, and between 4000 and 5000 lyric poems. He flourished throughout almost the whole of the 16th century.]
    ... https://www.hellenicaworld.com/Germa...sOfGoethe.html

    ... ""I, to ordain thee come," she spake:
    "So prosper, and my blessing take!
    The holy fire that slumb'ring lies
    Within thee, in bright flames shall rise;"

    Incredible poem.

    I´m glad you haven´t given up poetry. Enjoyed the poem. Used to have the feeling that a cat bunker protected against the suffering world outside. But it was a fallacious feeling.

    Thank you! Lol... no I haven't given up on poetry, perhaps a bit fallow with expectations for poetry month that is arriving swiftly in April
