Discursive Poetry


September 23, 2017

The Roman poet, Horace, wrote a couplet that has been rendered in English as, "Seek not for words, seek only facts and thought / and crowding-in will come the words unsought."  This week's poem, Unsought, expands on this idea, adding the proviso that the words will only come crowding-in if the thoughts they seek to express are clear and coherent.
