Fake Poets – favorites

One of my favorite quotes was from “Emily Dickinson” re: the “Wild Nights..Wild Nights” poem:

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-conversation=”none” lang=”en”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”><a href=”https://twitter.com/PottleHayley”>@PottleHayley</a&gt; love is WILD like the sea, sometimes there are no directions, but the waters can be still, like love <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/vizpoem?src=hash”>#vizpoem</a&gt; <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/fakepoets?src=hash”>#fakepoets</a></p>&mdash; Emily Dickinson (@VEmilyDickenson) <a href=”https://twitter.com/VEmilyDickenson/status/604101901299380226″>May 29, 2015</a></blockquote>

The waves in the sea can be calm, they can be wild, they can have no specific direction, just like love, so sometimes you should just “go with the fow” and see what happens.

One of my favorte movies of all time was Caddyshack, this poem fits perfect with the persona of the exterminator in the movie.  The woodchucks deserved it, even though they were only doing what comes natural to them.

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-conversation=”none” lang=”en”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”><a href=”https://twitter.com/ternary_logic”>@ternary_logic</a&gt; certainly not, it's not my fault they chose to ravage my garden…they decided their own fate, one which is not my fault</p>&mdash; Woodchucks' Persona (@ihatewoodchucks) <a href=”https://twitter.com/ihatewoodchucks/status/603689691884425217″>May 27, 2015</a></blockquote>

In “The Darkling Thrus by Thomas Hardy, the following tweet was a good explanation of what the poems meant by “An aged thrush, frail, gaunt, and small, In blast-beruffled plume, Had chosen thus to fling his soul, upon the growing gloom.”

<blockquote class=”twitter-tweet” data-conversation=”none” lang=”en”><p lang=”en” dir=”ltr”><a href=”https://twitter.com/jason_coats”>@jason_coats</a&gt; <a href=”https://twitter.com/johnsonmelissa”>@johnsonmelissa</a&gt; <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/fakepoets?src=hash”>#fakepoets</a&gt; <a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/vizpoem?src=hash”>#vizpoem</a&gt; Perhaps a very dead forest, with no leaves remaining on the branches. A copse corpse.</p>&mdash; Thomas Hardy (@thomashardyfake) <a href=”https://twitter.com/thomashardyfake/status/603587564067520514″>May 27, 2015</a></blockquote>
