GUEST,Doug Saum poetry - as popular as clog dancing? (42) RE: poetry – as popular as clog dancing? 07 Dec 10

I can share his feeling of the importance of poetry and agree that poetry is and ought to be "fun," though I'd hastily add the adjective "edifying." Don't we become more fully human when our ability to handle abstractions is employed in the service of personal and public mythology (a task perfectly suited to poetry)? This current generation relies on schema of abstraction prefabricated digitally. Whether there is enough room for mass creativity in the new digital order may be of concern. Then again, it has always been so that the human creative spark is fanned to flame by the committed artist. Keep on singing, Doug
