I am not sure what the criteria are for these poems, but I'd like to do two more Robinson poems - I really like his little stories. "Firelight" and "Reuben Bright" if that's OK. Linda

I want to do this Dickinson poem:

I ENVY seas whereon he rides,
I envy spokes of wheels
Of chariots that him convey,
I envy speechless hills

That gaze upon his journey; 5
How easy all can see
What is forbidden utterly
As heaven, unto me!

I envy nests of sparrows
That dot his distant eaves, 10
The wealthy fly upon his pane,
The happy, happy leaves

That just abroad his window
Have summerís leave to be,
The earrings of Pizarro 15
Could not obtain for me.

I envy light that wakes him,
And bells that boldly ring
To tell him it is noon abroad,ó
Myself his noon could bring, 20

Yet interdict my blossom
And abrogate my bee,
Lest noon in everlasting night
Drop Gabriel and me.

Is there a time length requirement for doing this by ourselves like last time?

Dr. Jerz,
Since at least 5 us have posted that we would like to present our poems on this day, should we all work together in a group?

Yes, that sounds like a good idea.
