to succor the new pretenders

How is everyone?

Any new verse, Stephen Saturn?

and has Matt gone to college?

I found a website some of you may want to visit

here is the address
http://www.thenewromantics.com

it is a site constructed by two individuals who fancy themselves the saviors of the romantic movement

they have none of your self-effacing uber humility, Stephen Saturn

on the contrary, apparently they are going to change the way of things

I would be interested to see what the rest of you think about it
(especially Saturn and Despondence)

( if I have been too suttle, I don't think too highly of it)

hope all is well with everyone
cheers

Interesting link.

I'm sure their intentions are good, but they really seem to be a bit too earnest. The "quiet revolution" is the wrong idea - poetry should be the lava of the imagination, overflowing with passion and force, trumpeting its ideas with a loud voice.

Some of the stuff on there is quite good - that guy John Upchurch writes a bit like me (though much more prolificly).

As to my own poems - I'm too caught up in love, friendship, making music, animations, art, outdoor activities that Saturn has scythed away all my hours and the muse lies neglected much to my shame and sorrow - if only the days were twice as long as they are!!!

I'll try to post some stuff next week, if I find time.

Thanks again for the interest. Keep up the good work - with Matt off to Uni, it will be a very quiet time on john-keats.com in future.
