July poets meeting

Half a dozen of us gathered.  The discussions ranged from the new US Poet Laureate, WS Merwin, then to our read around of published work, our own work...  then to the fun part of the evening when we all put pen (pencil) to paper.  Below is a sample.  Guess the poet?

Dousing fork

divining rod

They roamed the lawn

of forgotten souls

He declared the point

would measure

the length

the width

the mound to the stone

two by eight

one by three

the mound to the stone

measured the years
