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.

Thanks, Marian. This for some reason is a 'down day'. Been doing flood recovery work this morning. Will finish that work from home.

I should have mentioned that John Ashbery passed away this weekend at the age of 90. How wonderful that we can enjoy his readings online.
