Now, each time Spring spurts in, I pick up my very treasured book, and travel along with prose I've come to cherish, and Mr. Leopold Bloom, and read and read on the once Misty then sun yellow days of Spring, and thoughts of a man who only had just begun. And now, I hold close your poem, as I will each year at this time, and recall with fondness of how he frequently spoke of you.

Comment on Revising Men at the Library by Phil http://www.dalehobson.org/?p=120#comment-670 Phil Fri, 27 Jan 2012 21:44:53 +0000 http://www.dalehobson.org/?p=120#comment-670 Thanks, Dale, for legitimizing us guys who like to use the library. Here's one anecdote about library use you might enjoy. When I, a senior citizen, couldn't get my ipod to deliver email, I asked the desk librarian (Indian Lake Library) to send me the next teenager who walked in to help me. Within minutes an active 14-year-old and his buddy came up to me and pulled identical ipods out of their pockets. Within a few more minutes, they had me on-line and answering ether messages like - well, a seventh grader. So today's libraries provide many services including inter-generational support.

Comment on Revising Men at the Library by Ruth Kreuzer http://www.dalehobson.org/?p=120#comment-668 Ruth Kreuzer Thu, 26 Jan 2012 20:33:19 +0000 http://www.dalehobson.org/?p=120#comment-668 Very good rendition - it formed vivid, yet "soft," portraits of the types of men at a library as well as including a peep at you, the poet. What about pairing this poem with ones on the women at the library? or the children? The collection could grow and become a nice addition to a "poetry day at the library" during Library week.

Am I ever impressed to see a poet revealing multiple drafts of his work. This is sensational. Cheers, -Bob. Just thought I’d drop by (my first time here) and say hello, Dale.

The second version seems too detached and I actually liked the first person better. I write that way, more often than not. Something missing from the second one. I don’t know.
