One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

The Tuesday Platform


Greetings to all poets, wayfarers and friends. I was browsing through YouTube the other day and happened to come by a wonderful reading of Ode to a Nightingale by John Keats, hope you guys enjoy listening to it as much as I did. 

If you have any thoughts to share, ideas you wish to release into the wild or a world view to express, then you have come to the right place. Please share a poem of your choice and enjoy the company of your fellow scribes. 

Remember to stop by tomorrow for our Toads in Tandem feature post. Shay and I have banded together to bring you a collaborative poem so as to celebrate the creativity of our Garden environment.

I enjoyed the Keats reading especially the harp strumming and the bird twitterings. Thank you. Listening to it I realised that F Scott Fitzgerald nicked his novel title " Tender Is The Night" from Keats.
