April Poetry: Leaf Blowers and Stealing


Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal.

– T. S. Eliot

Mature poets steal; immature poets imitate.

T. T. Tail

April Poetry
(this is not great, I know.)

Tear, apply, tailor poetry 
Rely a pilot a rapport yet
rarely tip toe, pay portal
Prey a trial or aptly poet
Troop player, tap reality  
Try April, play to ear poet

Anagrammatic
Anagrammatic poetry is poetry with the constrained form that either each line or each verse is an anagram of all other lines or verses in the poem


If poetry comes not as naturally as the leaves to a tree it had better not come at all.

– John Keats

I have the skill
The leaves will come free
Now I have to explain
Why I bought a leaf blower
For poetry

      1. I think that sounds as though I didn’t like you poem… That’s not what I meant… I support you in not forcing yourself to do it again, because I know the pain of struggling with a form 😏

      2. I would understand if you didn’t 😉
        I know I could have done better.
        If we never struggle we never grow.
        I appreciate the support ☺️ thank you.
