Ok. Sorry. My mistake. I quoted it right in my first post though. :wink: My argument still stands. The word sheath in this context does not mean vagina. Jonnie is right about the metaphor. The "sword outwears it's sheath" in the same way the "soul outwears the breast". It's Byron's spirit and Byron'...

That's debateable. But my point was that the genitalia interpretation of the line ~ "the soul outwears the sheath" ~ does not make sense at all in context of the poem. Byron is referring to himself in this poem as his letter to Moore shows. That line doesn't refer to a woman's vagina. It's about Byr...

I'm wondering about that interpretation~the genitalia one. The line~ "the sword outwears the sheath"~ so are you saying Byron is writing that the penis is outwearing the vagina? I don't think this line is about male genitalia wearing out female genitalia. Here is what I found. 1] Included in a lette...

I don't believe you, Critic2. You are Perth. I know it and you know it. But I don't care anymore what you say. About poetry or anything. I don't understand the purpose in lying so much. It's like some silly frat boy game you're playing. You are a big disappointment to me. So, I am going to just igno...

Hello Everyone, I'm going to tell you what's bothering me, if I may. First, I entered both poetry contests. The intermediaries of the contests can verify this. I have offered comments on others poetry to the best of my limited ability. So, please no one call me a troll or siding with trolls or tell ...

I just read your edited post. The one where you now ask me, I wonder why your ego is engaged on matters like that? It all seems to come back to this. Someone questions your behaviour on this forum and you begin talking about "their" ego. :roll: I repeat, YOU should try an egoless way to critique poe...

Thnaks for the correction John. You're right it is Poem #2 not 17. I will go back and correct that.

Critic2, as I said I don't know you all I know is what is posted here. That's all I can go by.

I respectfully disagree, Paula. It's isn't about not wanting any comments or critiques about poetry that is posted or about being thin-skinned. It's about the way that it is done. Go and look at Poem 2 and the difference between Linda's critique and Critic2's. (and I'm am not talking about how in-de...

Critic2, I am beginning to understand paints' attitude towards you. Can't you criticize a poem without the snide comments? You can get your point across without ridicule can't you?

I believe this is my favorite. Black and white sunset and not being able to even sit on the porch and watch the rest of my time fade. The whole poem is a complete portrait and no line is superfulous.

I really liked this poem and the progression from no one's remembering the poet's birth date to the rain's whiting the poet's past.


Poet3, it was a family joke that my grandfather never knew what year he was born in, 1910 or 1911. So, your uncertainy resonated with me.
