A Bit of Emily...

Shall I take thee, The Poet said To the propounded word? Be stationed with the Candidates Till I have finer tired - The Poet searched Philology And when about to ring For the suspended Candidate There came unsummoned in - That portion of the Vision The Word applied to fill Not unto nomination The Cherubim reveal -
-- Emily Dickinson's Poem's (Final Harvest, ed/sel by: Thomas H. Johnson) (Ah Emily! If ever there was the true incantation of the spirt of the muses, 'tis she, indeed. In deed, in spirit, in elan.

A Brief Note for Non-poets that see no sense in all of this. (The ONLY appology you'll ever get from me)... (for the rest uv us, there is no more that need be said, in any century or year un-bound, or even in quiet-moments (in deepest intro-spection . *(|and all of you know HOW i yearned to hyphen-ate and re-phrase But. Here I am. Just a lowley editor. There is no greater way, there is nothing more to say. And THEY (the editors, and the right-speakers) (and in our lessened (lesson-ed) century, thne time In our era : the pol-iti-cally correct. I (damn) them and their way -- even if I (truely) mean my soul -- as if she would take a poet's soul from her or him whilst composting com-posit-ing :: words as best can be "true" No. (sigh, deee-p deep sigh): No poet ever has , nor will ever-be can, do or not can not do: No one through-out any universe (not EVEN ours) can ever tell more treu than Emilly did. When "angel's child" "whispered in Her ear" and word came to page as un-spent meteor thru atmosphere carrying a message from God: Leave the smagging poet's alone !!!! [ From this (your editor surmises) that (a) God got plenty more meteors. (b) God REALLY tired for self-serving peoople -- in office or not. (c) god got "stuff" tuh due. ] So there it is then: Page [ 248 ] Deii poetas amant. [ The gods like/love poets ] (And remember: You "hoid" it here foist !!)
