Par for the Course

2021-07-21
[FT]

Yes, I too have found this to be normal. One ends up with a rather long repeat prescription form. The poem is well written and members of Coo & Co send love and hugs as always xx


Rain Boredom and Resolution

2021-07-17
Very enjoyable, Joe. Great title and mood, and nice rhymes throughout. We cannot imagine you ever losing your groove :>)


Discordant

2021-07-16
Very much enjoyed, Joe. You have a real talent for description and your poetry is always a delight to read here :>)


In This World

2021-07-16
Witheringly brilliant, this one :>)


Allurement

2021-07-12
The cuckoo calls; I coo response
with no degree of nonchalance
and venture gladly to his seat
to share some cookies; what a treat!

Thank-coos, Team :>)

Ooh yes; three is the magic number :>)


My Daily Walk

2021-07-04
Ooh yes, Joe, our FT is rather quick to burn too, being Irish-fair. We like the scene setting here and the turn to the banyan tree in the final stanza. The shade is very pleasant and you certainly deserve a cold Chablis for your efforts :>)


Grandparents (edited)

Cutting wood

2021-07-02
Yes, very good, Joe. Members of Coo & Co are not able to perform such a task, but we are reminded of our FT's older brother using an axe to split logs, so we are able to enter the poem :>)

We particularly like 'Mahogany face' and 'Gloves piebald', but it is all very vivid and vibrant. Good work, Joe :>)

Isabelle, for what it's worth, members of Coo & Co are not remotely upset by this. But if some sort of change is required, we are in agreement with Tommo :>)

Also, if new members aren't aware, perhaps the information could be added to the welcome message from the Editorial Team?

All Good Things,
Coo & Co :>)


last light

2021-06-20
Ooh, who is ghost, Lynn?

It's a beautiful poem. Members of Coo & Co very much appreciate the structures, textures, and colours. We read a little sadness in the sense of a loved one not being there physically, but we know that thoughts may be very warming :>)


THE ROUGH & READY POET

2021-06-15
Ooh yes, Ken, do keep tapping. We are always pleased to read your poems :>)


RESTING

2021-06-14
We shall miss you, dear ken :>)


BEING NOTEISED

2021-06-13
Ooh yes, ken; and members of Coo & Co would add that it is good to keep a little something in reserve :>)


Last Night As I Walked

2021-06-13
Members of Coo & Co enjoyed this very much, Lady Courtaire :>)


Stopping at the beach on a postmodern afternoon

2021-06-12
This is excellent, Ducks. Members of Coo & Co had not heard of a Rhyme Royal before; we shall have to look it up 8>)

The beach setting is very pleasant and we like the notion of moving on from what is past. Very much enjoyed :>)


Partial eclipse of the sun

2021-06-10
Woo-hoo! High coo! Nicely done, Chris :>)


hummer

2021-06-08
Yes; a delightful bird poem :>)


Grass Snake

2021-06-06
A strong return, Yayāti :>)

We admire the grass snake metaphor and we particularly appreciate 'the dorsal scales', 'dancing like breath in the frosty air', 'peppered', &c.

In our minds, we have built an image to accompany the poem and it is very interesting; thank-coos for sharing :>)


A CHILD LIVEING IN THE CITY (Additnal Lines)

2021-06-06
Great stuff, ken, very well described :>)


hold tight (continually revised)

2021-06-02
Very good, Lynn. We like the sparse style yet rich content. The final two lines are particularly effective. It is pleasant to imagine different realities when writing creatively.


To my sister

2021-05-28
A very heartfelt piece. Welcome to PoetBay, Rosina :>)


Skating (A Triolet)

2021-05-28
This is charming, Ducks; the triolet form seems just right for your subject-matter. We particularly like 'frosted paradise' and 'our troubles melt'. Altogether, it is very beautiful :>)


Cherubs

2021-05-23
Members of Coo & Co find this poem very moving and very well presented. It put us in mind of the track 'Eternity' by Orion, the acoustic version, that is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZyZ_EMsHxc4 :>)


At Peace

2021-05-22
Very much enjoyed, Elle, in both languages. We're very intrigued by the wallpaper and the poem contains much to admire in terms of imagery and natural tone. The comparison of 'computer' and 'workhorse' is satisfying and we empathise with being able to connect and yet disconnect at times. The garden as 'untramelled thoughts' is excellent too.


River Hawk

2021-05-16
countryfog, greetings. It has been a while, but we see that you have recently logged in. Shortly we are going to send you a private message :>)


Ramblings 554

2021-05-13
Very well expressed, F.i.in.e :>)


VERSERLATING (Emprovments)

2021-05-12
Yes indeedy, ken. And not everyone aspires to be Shelley or Byron, I think it is worth mentioning here :>)


My Soulís Bequest

2021-05-12
Ooh yes, a very beautiful piece, Joe. We are particularly taken with the frigates, but we also cherish the dolphins, starfish, conch, and description of the sailing vessel. The colours are pleasant too :>)


[10-11 May] - Scheduled maintenance | Site downtime

2021-05-09
Ooh yes; thank-coos, Isabelle :>) x


The Seven

2021-05-03
This is very interesting, jim, and also very well written. We could say, it just seems Right :>)


Big shade from Jupiter ( A fun response to Pocket Planet )

2021-05-03
Hoo, hoo, hoo! Very good, Hans; some ace rhymes and rhythms here :>)


dark penumbra

2021-05-03
Ooh yes, Lynn, we agree with Bibek. This is really rather magical, from the slowing of the carousel to the dark penumbra at the end. Members of Coo & Co had not heard of Rosalia de Castro; we shall do a little googling, thank-coo :>)


planet lynn

2021-04-29
Ooh, very good, Lynn. An excellent response to the challenge :>)


Brushing up Against the Sun

2021-04-25
Yes, very good, Hans Bump. Very pleasant personifications and delightful descriptions overall. Thank-coos :>)


Birthday

2021-04-25
Ooh, 'willinilli', what a wonderful word, Joe. All at Coo & Co enjoyed this poem, Joe, pausing slightly in the third stanza for bonbons and pastries. We also appreciated the rhythms and rhymings :>)


Ekphrasis: Poetry & Visual Art

2021-04-20
Ooh yes, Isabelle, you must be back soon :>)

Thank-coos, Bibek, for this very interesting piece. Members of Coo & Co confess that we hadn't heard of the iconic poem by W.H. Auden; and we can't seem to think of any similar poems we might have enjoyed (sorry) :>/

However, we do have a great appreciation for art, to the extent that our Books selection here includes 'Poems at an Exhibition', inspired by a collection of artworks via the music of Mussorgsky. We're not sure whether any of it would qualify as ekphrasis, though. Anyhoo, thank-coos for the read :>)


Bleed bleed

2021-04-17
Dear dee,

Our FT has experienced suicidal thoughts. They are very difficult. Please keep writing.

All Good Things,
Coo & Co :>)


Magnolia

2021-04-14
What a delightful piece, Joe. The contrasts in the appearance of the magnolia as winter gives way to spring are very well drawn here. We particularly like the 'Marshalling blossoms' and 'Baronial clock'; and also the dash of romance in the final lines :>)


Soft words from a broken sky

2021-04-08
A poem to savour, Elle, with so much to enjoy. We particularly like the description of beating the old rug. Oodles of applause from Coo & Co (-:>)


we are not rooted

2021-04-06
Yes, this is very effective, otp. We had forgotten how much we enjoy the shapes of your poems. And the content here is very engaging. Worth re-reading indeedy :>)
