and to wrap up my three submissions for the last month of the year, here a very disconcertingly obscure poem by William Blake. It can give a lot of food for thought:

"The mental traveller" by William Blake (1757-1827)

I know. Some people consider this a "kid" poem.

Thanks
Dale
Thank you, Dale. Yes, it's in the interpretation! And then, there are people who consider that any poetry and rhyming is for kids :mrgreen:
You've done a terrific rendition!

Hi Rapunzelina, here are mine. I searched to no avail for info on Frank R. Heine, however his poetry exhibits a certain jocular sagacity we would be remiss to overlook.

I agree! Thank you for offering those, Bruce!

my second poem is a translation from the Gaelic :9: wish I could speak the lingo well enough to read it in the original:

"My harp to me bring" by John Campbell (1823-1897)
(new author, here is a page I found about him: https://digital.nls.uk/early-gaelic-book-collections/archive/76501216?mode=transcription)
translated by John Stuart Blackie (1809-1895)
(we don't insert the translator, do we ? if yes, he is also new, here is his wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Stuart_Blackie) and I gave him credit in the disclaimer at least

Thank you, Sonia! Indeed, we can't add the translation in a collection, unfortunately. So it'll just be the Bard of Ledaig!


Thank you, Kevin! :thumbs:

Thank you, Fritz!

I have some difficulty in finding publication information for "Work". The only reference I found is in The complete poems of D. H. Lawrence (Viking Press, 1971), but I would rather if we could find a pre-1924 source, or at least pre-1925, since we're close to the change of the year.

Adam's Curse is in the Magic Window, marked PL OK! :thumbs:
