Reply Martin Hill Ortiz March 17, 2014 Very happy to have found you. Reply NealD May 26, 2014 Rare the niche you’ve carved. Reply Ron L. Hodges December 16, 2014 Though I respect well-constructed open form poetry, I have always gravitated toward closed form poetry (both to read as well as write) because it contains a loftiness of expression, a beauty, often missing from open form poems. Also, too much modern poetry, in my opinion, appears to be written less for communication and more to build an elitist wall around the poet and his or her cabal. So, I was extremely pleased to find a repository for well-written classical form poetry! Reply Angela Porter March 19, 2015 I am one of the few British members of The Classical Poetry Society, and very pleased/proud? of its aims. I have enjoyed much that I have read so far.

Reply benjamen grinberg December 24, 2018 great. a thought on timing. i tend to wake up at 130 and exercise/meditate and study. by 4am i’m usually well on my way. but i find the rest of the world no longer keeps the sunrise sunset schedule. may i suggest getting the new poems up before the sun rises? just a thought. thank you.
