I am a poet. But any subject is fair game here.
Fab! I'm bullish on quatrains at the moment. And tetrameter.
I like the pace of this. Not sure about the first image, though: would a heavy sack 'drag on' anything? And what does 'hours drag on shadows' mean anyway? Second Stanza is very good. Do you need 'and snow'? 'Who see a rose rise from the earth/and beat it down with bricks'?Had a poetry crisis during a Les Murray reading. My blogg has details.
Thanks Harry and ShugI'll give some thought to the first image. "And snow" is a little awkward. A verb might be better (to keep the terameter, I need something). "...and bloom" maybe.Interesting experience at Les Murray, Shug. I might comment later.
