    To clarify this: my work has been welcomed with honor and compassion, but I have found several examples of this not being the case...I have also seen this type of judgment in the reponse to members' threads...I needed to say something...also, to clarify the title...MacArthur Park"was written by Jimmy Webb..when he was asked what he meant by the lyrics, he responded, nothing like anyone has inferred...J

    Judging someone’s poetry,
    is like judging someone’s soul.
    I do not understand the pompousness.
    I do not understand the goal.

    How do you know what the writer felt?
    How do you know the intent?
    The only thing you can take from it,
    is for you, what it has meant.

    With kindness tread in this sacred place.
    The poet is naked and bare.
    Remember when you posit your sagacity,
    to be more aware.

    amazingly bang on.. when you put a poem up, a verse, prose, be it just two lines you wrote, it really is putting a bit of your soul out there to see. thanks so much for putting this one up. :hug:

    You are so very welcome...I was tired that people who do not write tell others that their work is inferior...J
