    lol... I know I've read this before... having had to translate some of the text; oh, how he disparaged the neighboring towns!

    ♥ Love Emily's poetry ♥ ... in one analysis I found this poem is about her reading another poetess' poem.

    Looks like I skipped "J":

    Aii! How tender. Worthy rescue of "J". Will have to look for more poems by James Wright!

    Yes, I noticed recently that the 502 (?) error occurs on that website on occasion for me too. The poem is very evocative.

    Beautiful little poem by Emily

    Congrats. It is difficult to find an English poem with first line starting with "Q". Curious poem. Thought the poet was Australian and looked him up. But:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gerald_Massey

    I would have thought the same from Gerald Massey... Interesting bio.

    "Roses and Lilies" is a sweet poem. Wikipedia: "Her works include Poems of Passion and Solitude, which contains the lines "Laugh, and the world laughs with you; weep, and you weep alone.""... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ella_Wheeler_Wilcox . She embraced Rosicrucianism among other aesthetics at one time. I remember taking a bike ride with my then 2nd wife to the Rosicrucian museum in San Jose to view the beautiful grounds and see the exhibits: https://www.rosicrucianpark.org . It may have been a subliminal prompt for my poem "To the Moon !!!"

    The museum looks inviting! here in Brasil , Rosicrucianism was a sort of underground movement, I don´t know exactly why, I suspect it was linked to other things, like politics. Our first emperor, D. Pedro I belonged to that movement for a short time, reaching grade 7 (the highest).

    Enjoyed Lawrence's grandiose poem. I read some of his novels but wasn´t aware of his poetry.

    Read the English Wikipedia article on D. Pedro I... quite a colorful life. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pedro_I_of_Brazil

    Enjoyed the poem Interesting use of informal dialect. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Whitcomb_Riley Interesting character in that "Mark Twain" hated to be upstaged by him (lol).

    Interesting personality poet Riley
    "Later critics, like Henry Beers, pointed to his poor education as the reason for his success in writing." Lol! If that were true, Brazil would be swarming with poets.
    As you showed interest in D. Pedro I. Because of Napoleon, Brazil, differently to other American Nation, was a monarchy from 1808 when the royal family arrived from Portugal until 1889 when the country proclaimed the Republic and banished the members of the imperial family, who had to go back to Portugal. Pedro I started build the imperial summer palace of Petropolis: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Petr%C3%B3polis. I lived there for about two year right behind the Cathedral, were his shrine is kept. But this year the city was flooded by the continuous rains

    Pedro II, the son of Pedro I was the only modern emperor born In Brazil and one of the country´s best rulers, if not the best. But his daughter had married French Count d'Eu and she took it on herself to free the slaves definitively, annoying thus the big farmers who had now to pay wages to their former slaves or look for workers elsewhere.

    Enjoyed that original poem by Nicole Sealey!
