Young Poets

(The Muses by Brice Marden, born 1938, American

“Taught or untaught, we all scribble poetry.” ~ Horace (65-8
B. C.), one of the greatest Roman lyric poets


Write as you will
In whatever style you like
Too much blood has run under the bridge
To go on believing
That only one road is right.

In poetry everything is permitted.

With only this condition of course,
You have to improve the blank page.

~ Nicanor Parra, born 1914, Chilean poet and mathematician

This could be good for Poetry in the Halls. It would be esp. good for high schoolers.

I like that Parra was a poet and mathematician!
