One Feels As Though One Has Stumbled into a Stash of Long-Lost Keats

Or Milton, or other long lost poet who actually has some clue as to whom Philomel is.

"From Arcadia to the stone fields of Inisheer. . ."


  1. I am as grateful for your enjoyment as I am undeserving of the comparison. :)

  2. Jeff,

    I recognize that it was a rather high-flown comparison, but using language and image like that recalls no one more recent. The poems are archaic in the very best sense of that term--not outmoded, but classic--going back to the best in the tradition of English poetry.

    In short, I like them a lot and they take a fine ear and sensibility to compose. I'm a sucker for anything that smacks of a more formal approach.
