I love poetry :D!

"I look at it this way: you can run across a log pond, you know, where they're floating the logs at a sawmill, by stepping on one log at a time. And if you don't stay on a given log very long, you can go hopping clear across the pond on these logs. But if you stop on one, it'll sink. Sometimes I feel a writer should be like this, that you need your bad poems. You shouldn't inhibit yourself. You need to have your dreams; you need to have your poems. If you begin to keep from dreaming or from trying to write your poems, you could be in trouble. You have to learn how to say " Welcome... welcome." Welcome, dreams. Welcome, poems. And then if somebody says " I don't like that dream," you can say " Well, it's my life. I had to dream it. " And if somebody else says " I don't like that poem, " you can say, " Well, it's my life. That poem was in the way, so I wrote it."
- William Stafford

Anyway, Enjoy~

Now I know it's been 4 years since you first joined WP and more than 4 months since the last time you wrote (well, so say the numbers on your profile) but I *just* stumbled upon your page and I had a really quick read through some of your poetry and I must say, I quite liked it and I hope that you still receive email notifications or that you check from time to time your old WP account to basically read this: I like your writing! 
      (I'm a firm believer in praising what's praiseworthy.)
      Have a great day!
