Announcing a new community: verse_albion.

Do you write original poetry in English that doesn’t embarrass you?

 

Is it your delight to render the Romantics into Anglo-Saxon verse?  Do you exult in translating rude limericks as Latin lays?  Or revel in reclothing Pindar in Spenser’s robes of state?

 

If you feel that there should be twelve poetry months in a year, I advert you to the new community, Verse Albion, open to all who write original verse in English and all who translate poetry into or out of the English tongue.

Will you be posting your poems to your lj, too? If not, I will have to join. I've not had the energy to post the comments I wanted to for your recent work, but it has held me spellbound, and I will be going back to those posts once I regain functional neurones.

I shall be crossposting.

And I trust (see below) I shan't be alone.

The more poets and translators and readers, the better.
