Comments: hello, i found your website through the poetry webring. This is certainly an informative, and enjoyable website. I like the selections of poetry you had posted, both by you (Need) and others, like Robert Frost. ( Lodged) I liked your personal views about writing, being a shy person myself, writing is one of the ways I communicate to people. I also liked the pages concerning writing poetry, i liked that it you didn't have a list of telling me how to and how not to write poetry, which i've seen a lot of, and it just bugs me that people put so many damn rules into something that should be fun, creative and experimental, they make it sound more like a chore, then a means of expression. Anyway, it looks like you put a lot of hard work into this place and it shows.
