Color Master
Fay Slimm. said:

How truly delightful to not only see you in video performing in front of the very colours the verse expresses so well but to hear you recite clearly the outcome of colourless lives strikes at the heart of the vital role colour can play.The poem vibrates with a a palette of wisdom with metaphor to match. Thank you dear friend for guiding me to this and am so glad I have at last had the pleasure of finding and reading a fine verse delivered just right. - love the beret by the way !!

Great fun reading this. To heck with the rules - just stick to the 5-7-5 format - the results are so much more varied and more fun. So there!

Mary had a lamb
The shocked doctor was perturbed
He ordered roast beef

Good writes A. Sometimes in my hymn-poems an extra syllable can be sneaked in, e.g. heaven can be \'heav-en\', or sound like \'heav\'n\'.
Or some words may have extra long musical notes to them.
I\'m not a professional at it. Oh, the technicalities! We\'ll lose sleep over it if it\'s not exact! lol

Clinical Trials
Michael Edwards said:

I was responsible for drafting Clinical Trial agreements and one of the most difficult areas to address was the question of side effects so I do understand how you have suffered. If you were not properly advised at the time then it could be argued that your consent to proceed was not valid and although I doubt if you would ever want to go down that path it could give you grounds for action. I do hope the effects are in the past - keep writing Augustus.

A fine write A. I see they are \'trials\' in more than one sense.

You turned something so grueling and uncomfortable and made it a collection of beautiful words. Such beauty!

Ah babies and children and I just melt - sad reflection on the world these days but I feel uncomfortable even smiling at a little one unless I know the parents, and yes - it\'s okay to say \'rosed\' in fact I might use it myself sometime.

Oh !! Augustus this is
Just so very good
I absolutely love it...
My wife is always
Trying to get to go to

Telling her I know
No one of that name..
She doesn\'t seem to
Listen......

Alliteration can be mesmerising, I use it it some of my poems but they are not a patch on this fine write. (Or those of GMH)

But I has too much sherry (so I says!). Then I\'m always shaying shumthing - good acting innit?! heehee. I\'m tee-total really, well 99%.

I, too, am intrigued by alliteration, but have never made the bold, beautiful stab at it like you have here. Great job in accomplishing what you set out to do, Augustus! I\'m a bit envious.

Reading the dip into alliteration and assonance you scribed here made my heart sing - - truly a soul-stirring verse which I for one could wish was in print dear Augustus - you have the talent that Hopkins would surely have marked with approval.

I alliterate if I have too much sherry(??). then it\'s easy. Every S word starts with sh.... e.g. shay shomething shuitable, etc!
