Another Look

⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Teasdale got the first of me,
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Wurdemann got my best,
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀but Van Duyn only got me going
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀wanting all the rest.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Teasdale‘s I could never get through,
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Wurdemann‘s I got fine,
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀but all the rest I get to
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀just remind me of Van Duyn.


prompted by A Birthday in August ~ Sara Teasdale
at the imaginary garden with real toads,
shadowing Teasdale’s The Look,
as posted at the Academy of American Poets

      (And yes, I wanted the links. I don’t like bothering him when he’s this busy. Pretend they’re there.)
