Dear Saturn,


I enjoy reading your epic. The poetic juice flowing within your epic is distilled from a brave, romantic, spirit. Your poetic fancy compares to the spacious imagery within "The Eve of St. Agnes". Stanza XXXVII is a gem.
Remember always,doubts of emotion are relieved by sparks of genuis. :D


peace,

I couldn't have said that better myself--in fact I don't think anyone could say it better period! Honey tongued jamiano!!

One of my favorite stanzas is:

Like atoms by nature’s bonds compound,
The lovers found it painful to part,
But had the sure solace of being bound,
With perdurable chains to another’s heart.

Stephen, you have an unusually adroit knack for the inverted sentence--an ability not found in poets anymore. I love the metaphor here...the poetry commingled with the scientific, figurative language--sophisticated in its union...Bravo again, sir. :wink:

Thanks a lot :oops:

I was knee deep in Shakespeare in those days so I was well used to those inverted scentences - reading stuff like Venus and Adonis and The Rape Of Lucrece.

I believe this is the romantic of all poems.

Romeo and Juliet is the most Romantic of all plays - nothing else comes close.

I was totally obsessed with every adaptation of it for years, yes even The Baz Lurhman film too.
