You've romanced the Romantics there. Nice one.


I am smiling Julie with this sensible humor-like poem you've penned and somehow I could relate in some ways...why, I also adore great men, dead or alive, overtly and who cares, right?

beautiful as always Julie and I love the patience you always render in your works...

btw, i had a hard time posting a comment once in your 3WW offering, I wonder what is wrong with your page or maybe the poor net connection...

i hope this will be posted now...thanks so much Julie, you make my day, full of *smiles*...:-)))


Envious. I have given my all to the undead. Now I'll follow your lead and make happy with the dead man crush. I love this piece!


the overt nature of a crush ... literary or otherwise ... brilliant!

whether or not your children think this is TMI, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

thanks for your contribution to the prompt!!



“I have drunken deep of joy”


Yes, yes, yes. But Mary is sane whereas Percy....
Beautiful poem. Thanks, for this.


Sounds great, Julie. I love your "another Dead Man Crush." Your poem reminded me a little of the English teacher, John Keating (Robin Williams) in Dead Poets Society. :)

It also made me think about identifying with one of your guys or another from the dead. Right now I cannot think of one I'd like. Perhaps James Henry Leigh Hunt for his Abou Ben Adhem (may his tribe increase!) I do ID with Einstein not for poetry but rather for his abdominal aortic aneurysm. I have one that has been repaired with a stent.


"I want people to look at my words and say 'I have drunken deep of joy' here, and sigh…"

That is the goal of all poets. Very aptly put.

And I *love* the "Dead Man Crush"--Nice to know I'm not the only one!!
