Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita
mi ritrovai per una selva oscura...
!?...passavo per un saluto!

Eryl Shields said...

Rosa ~ my Italian is incredibly sketchy, so although I can translate most of the words it's a very literal translation that makes little sense, but thank you. I passed by your blog but couldn't leave a comment.

Hi there! I hope that you may have some time to feel free to visit my blog. :)

Hello Eryl,

Thanks for visiting. Glad you've discovered and like Melrose. Hope it lasts! I enjoyed hearing your poem and that you were "inspired" by the bowl to write it. I shall be posting a poem (ahem) tomorrow inspired by the Read Write Poem website's weekly prompt.

Eryl Shields said...

Leigh ~ :)

Jm ~ I will visit your blog in the morning.

Derrick ~ In that case I will come over first thing.

I was quite startled by Melrose: it's so pretty, has a real buzz about it, and it's only about an hours drive along a beautiful road. I don't know how I hadn't found it before!

As this blog has slightly fallen off the twig you can find me more regularly at my main blog thekitchenbitchponders.blogspot.com
Sorry, I have no idea how to put a link in a comment box.

Brilliant. It's amazing the feeling such a simple object can invoke. When I was looking up storytelling pieces I also found this one and thought it was great. I Wanted to share it with others who can appreciate it.

A wonderful resonant poem here, Eryl. And how lovely to hear the sound of your voice, so British to my Australian ears, so fine, deep and honest.

Lori said...

Absolutely wonderful poem. I love poems that take a new perspective on something ordinary yet so full of symbolism.

Eryl Shields said...

James ~ I was sure I'd replied to your comment months ago, do apoligise, and thank you for sharing that link I had a look and it was really interesting.

Elizabeth ~ I thought I'd replied to this too, something about my telephone voice! I love the Australian accent, as I do all accents. Mine, I think, is a bit bland all the interesting sounds have been ironed out.

Lori ~ thank you. This was the first poem I wrote about which my tutor said needed no more work. That was a good day!
