The Poetry Place

From Notes to Poem 6

Tuesday, 20 May 2008 10:30:54

A winding woody way, a bridge, another path,
A cottage from a fairy tale, a poem from Plath,
This garden has such energy, high spirits, wit

I think I can begin the list with items that describe the water features. That will then link on to the 'winding woody way...' etc.

So we will have Brook, weir, waterfall, pool, rivulet, which together will make another ABBA quartet:

brook, weir, waterfall, pool, rivulet,
A winding woody way, a bridge, another path,
A cottage from a fairy tale, a poem from Plath,
This garden has such energy, high spirits, wit

and I have to work on the final couplet. The last line I think will be 'The trees speak for themselves, so must the art.'

Having found myself writing a sonnet again, I'll look at the scansion. There are a few places where I'm not quite happy with it.
