Monday, 16 February '09: The Serious Scribbler and her poetry debut
Passionate Poet Laureate of Blogland, Poetikat, has deemed me worthy of the Serious Scribbler Award. Instead of the usual acceptance speech, I shall make my debut as a poetess. Yes, poetess. Notwithstanding my rather well-known feminist leanings, I would you prefer it if you address me as a poetess. Such a pretty word, redolent of Elizabeth Browning reclining on a chaise longue and Emily Bronte, scribbling beside the fire while the wind wuthers in the trees.
In line with last week's canine sentiments, here is my first poem to be published on the Net!
Puzzlement by Yours truly
I am puzzled why poets
So seldom wrote
Is it that commonplace
Humdrum loyalty is
In favour of the more exalted?
1 April 2001.
Now I must return the honour.
1 Claire who shows great potential as photographer, writer and poet(ess).
2 Barbara Martin, friend, conservationist and writer of captivating fantasy who lives in the most beautiful neck of this world's woods.
3 Alexandra, my original bloggy inspiration and also Poet Laureate of Blogland. Please note the title of Laureate is shared by several poet(esses).
4 Pammie Jo, an avid reader and as you know, in every reader is a budding writer just tucked away waiting to emerge.
4 And the same goes for Sally, Blogland's smiling lady!
