Poetry Information Tips and Help

I've always been a great fan of poetry. Here are various poems and articles on poetry that I've written over the years. Enjoy! And remember, poetry that was written after the year is PROBABLY STILL UNDER COPYRIGHT and should never be posted on the web. The poet is still trying to earn a living from his or her works!!
