Late though it is: HAPPY NEW YEAR! And a good one it will be. Compromise will rule the day! The first compromise will be with myself – I’ll set aside the repetitive chores that I must complete to keep my “house” in order but I’ll read and write first to get on with my writing goals that keep me centered.
The political machine, the environmental machine, the education machine, the money growing machine – all need to readjust for optimum accomplishment this year. Let’s hope…
And for us, the poets, let’s write what makes our hearts tick with life. We, the Louise Bogan poets, have pushed our unveiling of the Verse-o-matic until National Poetry Month. We will unveil it April 18, 2013. We had the vending machine in the Lunenburg Library but every time we would fill it with candy and poems the patrons would turn the dial and retrieve the poems before it was full. They didn’t read the sign to wait for the unveiling…that’s a good omen – readers like the concept of read a poem and stay sweet.
In any case we need more poems …so send them to the Lunenburg Library, Lunenburg, MA 01462 or to meletarte at yahoo dot com. Also do plan to come and read a favorite poem April 18 at 6:30PM and stay for refreshments.
