We all have our own style, You're quite good. You ever consider collecting it and publishing a collection? Kinda pricy, (~$400 US for 60 copies of Mysteries of the Mind when I did it) but it feels good. Also, looks like you may well have enough material by what you've posted here.

Hey, I like it! biggrin.gif

I really don't do poetry so poems to me are like a painting. I may not be able to analize it's artistic merits, but I know what I like and I know what speaks to me.

So, don't laugh if I am really off base here but what this poem said to me is the things we hold onto may not be the best things for us and we may wake up one day and realize we are old and we let our life pass us by because we held onto the wrong dream. Got the banshee instead of the lady love.

Then again, Roisin tells me it is all about intrepretation, so I can't be 'wrong'. Was I anywhere near the author's intent?

I feel that for a given piece to mean *something* to those who read it is what is important. It doesn't matter if it is the same thing as what the writer saw/felt when they wrote it.

Just my 2 cents worth on the matter. I know that for my own material, I don't care if someone who reads it sees or feels the same thing I saw or felt as I wrote it. Just so long as they see or feel something from it then I feel like I've done my job. Anyone else share this view?

I totally agree with you both. Poetry is sort of like painting or a sculpture---once you have created it you have to let it stand on its own. The artist hopes what he or she was trying to convey or create is sensed by the on-looker in some form or fashion, but as we have heard before 'Beauty is in the eye of the beholder'.

I too love Poe and Frost. I would love to own E. A. Poe's entire written collection of works. Out of all the Poets I taught in High School Poe seems to be all the student's favorite.

As for publishing a collection of my own poetry---I have thought about it, but wondered if anyone would want to read them. Outside of five works being published, I have felt little encouragment from family and friends about my writing. There is something about putting pen to paper. It is almost mystic, like a driving force within my soul. I often write emotional impressions of the heart. Sometimes I start with an idea, but most of the time it is a deep running emotion that last only for a brief moment. In order to capture it and explore it---I have to try to put that feeling into words. Maybe this sounds a little trite, but it is my method and reason for writing poetry. smile.gif

Ok, i am not much of a poet. I know songs are poems. But for 20 yrs almost I have been writting for goth/ heavy metal type songs... so this lighter stuff is new to me...LOL!! I'm not a poet it and I know it!!!!LOL!!!!! But here we go anyway....

Faerie woman will ye visit me tonight
and take me to the lands beneath the hills
to drink the best of wines, dance to music so sweet

But only to wake and it still be night
with only a rose to show you were here

When next you come, I'll give you my heart
and ask for you to stay

But I'm an old man now as time has passed
for you did not appear

The air grows cold, it is my time
But wait! What 's this I see?
it be m'lady in white
she has come for me..



For those that aren't familiar with celtic lore.... the lady in white, his faery woman... is the banshee...

Don't be too cruel.. sad.gif wink.gif

barddas,

In my opinion, a poet is a storyteller just as a bard is a storyteller. The old ballads that were sung and passed from generation to generation are pieces of poetry, at least this is what my British Lit. professor told us. These particular works weren't written down at first, but only sung in taverns and watering holes of old. In some instances, old ballads started out as poetry and some poetry started out as ballads then later recorded for prosperity. So from one poet to another your piece was very good. cool.gif

I am not much of a poet, but I was inspired by my cat to write this the other day.
