Let's begin

Etymology has a huge part to play  

History can go back a long way

Effecting what us poets say.

I see Po's feather floating
It's just about to drop
Within the canyons of my mind
Plop plop plop

Didn't know feathers went plop Eth?....

You don't have a deep enough understanding of poetry luv....

Bloody hell Do!

That is so deep, it needs a warning notice and a barrier placed around it.

Understanding my poetry is like dropping a feather down a canyon and waiting for echo.

If we understand the root of a word, the understanding goes deeper, but getting to the roots of all the words, needs time n hard work. In today's time people are lazy, easy n quick in work, who has time for such deep understanding. It's a superficial world with superficial understanding.

Good morning Don
Could it be the heat getting to you?

I am about to go in to the garden to finish a path that I started laying in the spring. It seems a bit like the great Wall of China... sort of on it's side. Like it was blown over in a gale. Actually IT IS blowing a gale!

Po

I understand exactly where you're coming from.....

And you're right. I can't work out my deepness.

And Thalia's given up trying to understand.....

Let's face it Po. I'm a mess. But I liked the rehab nurses.

Don You have such a deep understanding that you Don't understand yet...

I had an extremely interesting conversation with a Chinese gentleman who informed me that he was a Mandarin. He lived during the Ming dynasty. He died in 1610.

Although I am 10,000
Miles away from you
Intellectual interaction
Is what I want/to do

And I'm happy to say I'm getting it....

I read it many times, and each time it gave a different message, a short poem with long explanations... The art of writing a long story in a short way...well mastered Master Po!! Need to learn from u!!

Hi Ruth

Much of my language has its roots in Anglo-Saxon.

My accent is broad Norfolk... If I rite how I spook no bugger would understand uz a tall.

You are deeply implanted in my psyche Don

From my first day here at WOL I have looked forward to your comments and friendship.

When I called you a Kakatoe roseicapilla
Well not exactly that...

I felt I had perhaps inadvertently overstepped the mark....

I call you 'The Big Don' a term of endearment perhaps more appropriate.

Just me being Frank Frank.
Oops! Note to self... Don's name is NOT Frank!

Your last one I remember Po
Was just a page of blank
You've done three lines, fantastico!
And no my name's not Frank

(It's little don Nobody.....remember?)
