I posted a poem today in the Poetry Nook at Codey's World.

It is called Unwasted Youth < click here

Do let me know what you think.

Wow! ...Yeah, thanks for that Des. :stare:It's good, though rather *howls* depressing.Try this
Thanks Camy,I wondered why no one had commented. :sad: It must be as you say, "howls depressing," though I had only meant is a reflective observation of youth from an older point of view.Being old ain't that bad if you can still look. :wink: Oh well, back to the drawing board. :wink: I enjoyed the poem you linked.

I like them both, though readily admit poetry is not really my thing. It always seems to me to be posturing a bit, and throwing words together that might not mean exactly what you're try to say but fit the rhythm or style of the thing. But that just my gut reaction to most poetry, and if you can't say something nice, my mommy told me not to say anything at all, so I'll shut up now.C

Yep, sounds as good a definition as any to me Cole. So when can we expect a poem from you? :wink:

I feel a bit stupid, even more so than usual. See, I read the blog entry, but I didn't see a poem so I thought Des was fooling around. Now I see the little link and need a drink so I can think about my wasted youth.Jason R.

I wrote some poetry in my youth. If I do so now, which I don't, it's more for humorous effect than anything else. I find the form limiting. I do know when I was trying it, years ago, it did seem that some emotions could be best expressed in that format. I don't remember why that was, but do remember feeing that to be the case.I think you have to concentrate a lot harder on each word when you're writing poetry. When I'm writing prose, frequently a lot of words come to mind in a mass, and I have to hurry to get them down on the page before I lose them. You can't do that with poetry. Or at least I can't. I can with prose. I have to go back then and massage them a little, but for the most part, that works.Maybe I just don't have th patience for poetry.Man, someone could write a poem to that thought.C

I was going to reply, but thought it would make sense to make a broader statement in my next entry, which will be my 50th blog entry and should therefore be something different if not special. :wink:
