“A poet can survive everything but a misprint.”Posted: August 18, 2011
So said Oscar Wilde.
This poet has been conspicuous by her absence recently.
Readers, I have not been well.
I had a serious fall about a month ago which has made it difficult for me to use the keyboard for more than a few minutes.
That’s why these pages have been empty for so long. I hope you have missed me.
I hope to return soon to blogging my life in poems. In the meantime, here are some of my favourite quotes to keep you (and me) ticking over until I am back to my old self.
Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. Leonard Cohen
Poetry is a deal of joy and pain and wonder, with a dash of the dictionary. Kahlil Gibran
There’s no money in poetry, but then there’s no poetry in money, either. Robert Graves
A poem begins with a lump in the throat. Robert Frost
Poetry is the language in which man explores his own amazement. Christopher Fry
A poet’s autobiography is his poetry. Anything else is just a footnote. Yevgeny Yentushenko
