our lives in cartoons

The cunning expression of language is it's own delight and reward. I am in the middle of the book and going to the front of the book for ever impatient I want the finished poet first.

The blue sky outside is being smothered with the feathers of the clouds that are grey. As the sun has walked about dabs of snow were present and soon will be puddles. The lacklustre garden is full of dead remnants that will be pruned and cleaned up this weekend or next. I don't know.

The oddments we had for lunch were all the things I had -an assortment of vegetables, olives, pickles and hash browns from breakfast. The sandwiches were eaten and we're all doing our own thing. Younger boy is by his computer. The others nap on the sofa and bed while I go through Robert Penn Warren. I have read "Muted Music" with satisfaction; it's hard to read any poet now with bad lines when you get all good ones from poets like Robert Penn Warren. I've yet to come across a line that I wince at.

The world runs after fame, power and money but in a poem all of these lures are junk and we have the essence of real and true.

Cartoons offer some glimpses of what is true:
