Welcome home, you. I love both of those poems. Thanks.

Thank you! I have been worried about your ears. But with a friend like Gi Gi, I know you are in good hands. LOL

Love the fireworks poem – amazing imagery. And really, any blog post that slaps up a good poem or two is making the world a better place.

Thanks for stopping by! The Oscars post is coming later this week – alas, not a medley (man, I wish I could do a medley for every post) and no Gaddafi, but perhaps in the future….

SORRY!

I love the “Taxi” poem, it’s so evocative which, I guess, is the point! Plus it’s hard surviving the hours without someone you love. 🙂

That is indeed my one favorite ever since I found it.

Kathryn McCullough March 1, 2011 at 1:01 pm

I adore the Amy Lowell poem, “Taxi.” God, that’s incredible, just incredible. Thanks for sharing it——————

Hugs from Haiti,

You are welcome. Her life story is incredible too.

Meg at the Members Lounge March 1, 2011 at 12:40 pm

Wow, Fireworks is amazing. I had no idea Amy Lowell was from my own backyard!

Hi Lin:

Welcome home!

Thanks for sharing Amy Lowell with us…we have one of her books at the store, but I’ve never opened it (maybe I should!)…

Hugs,
Wendy

I drank in her words with greed. The imageries are incredible.

Life with Kaishon February 28, 2011 at 11:10 pm

I agree with dufmanno.
This post is a masterpiece.
I am not surprised.

Awww you guys are too kind. *blushing*

dufmanno February 28, 2011 at 8:34 pm

How is it you can return from the being in the sky for days and type out this masterpiece?

And as far as those hazy days of ferocious need feeding in the early years of a childs life?

Right on sister.

Never have I felt such a mixture of rage, resentment, fear and blazing love thrown together in one pot.
I’m coming to snuggle with you and Elly.

“a mixture of rage, resentment, fear and blazing love thrown together in one pot” Nicely put!

Snuggle FTW!

Andrea @ Shameless Agitator February 28, 2011 at 3:07 pm

Thanks for the poems. Wow. I’ve got a few people like that, mutual hate leading to fireworks. I try to utilize avoidance at all times, which is difficult when considering I have to continue to “work” with them in our local county political party. Fireworks, indeed!

Next time just envision the colors and the force evoked by this poem.

MrsBlogAlot February 28, 2011 at 12:18 pm

Wow that Fireworks one did pack a punch!

Absence Alternatives March 1, 2011 at 10:20 pm

It packed a punch but unfortunately not lunch. 😉

TheKitchenWitch February 28, 2011 at 9:30 am

Both of these completely stunned me. Awe-inspiring.

Absence Alternatives March 1, 2011 at 10:16 pm

Yup!

Elly Lou February 28, 2011 at 9:16 am

It’s raining here and I’m whiny. How about we just cuddle up under this down comforter, order some bad takeout and giggle over issues of Us Weekly? Does noon work for you?

That sounds absolutely lovely!

BigLittleWolf February 28, 2011 at 5:57 am

Heaven, for a Monday morning. Or maybe any morning. (Glad you’re back! Rest! And more Lowell…)

Absence Alternatives March 1, 2011 at 10:16 pm

Thank you!

There is a lot more here. 🙂
