Charles Baudelaire - in sidebar
Since starting a Lilliput blog back in July 2007, samples of most issues from #100 through #150 have been posted, with the exception of some broadside issues it would be a disservice to excerpt. Beginning with this posting, we're going to step into the way back machine and begin posting poems from #99 (October 1998) down. Here's a couple of tiny gems from #99:
I'm getting old now
I think I'll marry
and settle down
the flowering morning
John J. McDonald
An Imitation of Hsü Kan (171-218 A.D.)
Since you, sir, went away,
my tiny trellis shakes with grief.
Red Chinese poppies you planted last fall
grow like tears --- immeasurable.
Linda Joan Zeiser
Before the ride ends she wants to go again
Have I ever mentioned how much I love the one line poem? Till next week,
