One must make a distinction however: when dragged into prominence by half poets, the result is not poetry, nor till the autocrats among us can be “literalists of the imagination”—above insolence and triviality and can present for inspection, imaginary gardens with real toads in them, shall we have it.

Good morning.
Sorry to get in first, but I'm doing my insomniac act and am now in need of some shut-eye.

Good morning. I'm ready for coffee to pull my shards together. If I hadn't limited myself to the letter T, I would have put coffee on my list of the essential!

Good morning toads! I hope everyone will have a great day. I'm off to work but am looking forward to reading all of your poems as my after work treat!

@Adrian. You may link a second poem. There is no hard and fast rule as to how many poems can be posted, though most people only share one, since we do not have a huge readership on RT.

My poem today is a revision of a revision.

Kortas, I loved your latter day Juliet waiting for her salt and pepper Romeo, but couldn't find a place to leave a comment on your site.
