Thread Name: More Noteworthy Mudcat Quotations
Subject: RE: More Noteworthy Mudcat Quotations
A "catalogue" poem of the style made popular by W.W. 150 years ago. Simple sort of thing assigned to freshmen English and used by Ginsburg and the beats. Unfortunately, hers is lacking in imagry, and poetic strengths....for example the alliteration in W.W.'s line

Solitary, smelling the earthy smell, stopping now and then in the silence

Truthfully, there is nothing extraordinary about her blog. It should have remained a blog.
