BdMj5j You made certain fine points there. I did a search on the issue and found the majority of folks will have the same opinion with your blog.

Silent Poem by Robert Francis

Hey! I like Silent Poem a lot. It's set in New England acc. to Francis. Every word is a noun. Silence sits between each word, it is forty words. It simply evokes a rustic farm setting: the critters, the industry, the interior, exterior. Is it a shape poem too? A grid? A gate? You decide. Is title ironical? I think so.
