Thank you for being kind and understanding with LJ. At
least she read the poem. Most 13 year olds are too self-absorbed to read
anything but Harry Potter (or maybe they would just wait for the movie).
text-messages from their friends are about the limit of their literary
exposure. I must say I'm not much better. I have just discovered Edgar Lee
Masters. I can almost see, feel, taste, and smell the way he descirbes life
in his poetry. I will keep reading ELM.

Mr. L.J.,
When you post comments about a poem by a master like Edgar Lee Masters,
please look at some of his other works and check your spelling. I mean no
offense to you, but this is just one poem from a big anthology called the
"Spoon River Anthology" about a small town. Also, poems do NOT always have
to rhyme. The poems from this anthology are mostly about people's lives
from a small town, so it makes more sense to their lives to NOT rhyme.
Once, again no offense. A few years ago I was your age, and I felt the same
way about poetry. There is probably no chance that you or any other person
will ever read this, but I read your comment, being the only one, and felt
rather offended (possibly not the best word...) so I felt compelled to post
this. Before I end: I am wondering how you happened to come across this
without having known Masters's work (an assumption) and having not read any
of the other Spoon River Anthology. If you see this, post it, if I ever
check this again, it would be intresting to know.

Keep knowledge-seaching! "Latter!!!!!!"

that peom was all off to me. it didm't ryme or feeling. I think that a
peom should ryme but, if it doen't ryme it should atleast put you in a
sertain mood. like a love peom, it should be deep and inspiring. anyway,
I'M just 13 what do I know. Latter!!!!!!
