|How can they form such nasty words,
her lips, her tongue, such good friends
of my own lips and tongue!?
Unless my own--
friends of my enemy's--
have betrayed me.
[Note: It seems when the gentle lips (and tongue and eyes) one loves are forming furious phrases, having become
weapons of an enemy, this is usually because one's own lips (etc.) have been consorting with an enemy or have
created one. A bit obscure, so I'll add another poem today.]
Occasionally poetry is occasional poetry.
Occasional poetry is occasionally poetry.
[Note for those unlittered with letters (that is, unlettered): "Occasional poetry is simply poetry written for a specific
occasion--for example, someone's birthday or a national holiday. It tends to be corny or kind of trivial--quickly dates, not
much respected. For example, in England, traditionally (maybe still?), the Poet Laureate was expected to write a poem
every year celebrating the birthday of the monarch. Few of these poems are still read or even in print today, and the
post of Poet Laureate was often "earned" by a minor poet and disdained by the best poets. This was a running joke in
the late 17th and early 18th Centuries, when the powerhouses of English poetry (Dryden and later Pope) were never
Laureates, and we know about the Laureates of their times (Thomas Shadwell, Colly Cibber) only because Dryden and
Pope wrote brilliant satirical poems about them.
But occasionally an occasional poem is also a fine poem and creates a stir and lasts. An example from the 20th
Century is W. H. Auden's poem on the death of William Butler Yeats. There are many other fine occasional poems. The
Auden poem ("In Memory of...") can be found at (among many other sites)
http://www.serve.com/Lucius/Auden.index.html, where it is the second poem on that site.]
