Cool site, Phil. I like the layout, the way the current issue is set up as a player. Of course, I maximized it to full screen to enjoy it.

Your entry is right there. The meter matches the subject matter, and I especially like the alliteration in the penultimate and ultimate lines.

The poem itself comes across as "earthy," elemental, equinoctial. I read, cautiously, and my suspicions were confirmed when, at the end, the poem turned eerie: "No child plays here." Great work!

Thanks Tony. Folk tales can pick up the darker threads. The editor puts together themed anthologies too - chance for PMO members to have poems in print!

Another fine poem which I think is an appropriate selection for this publication. Congrats, Phil!


Note: I realize it's in the same periodical, but I would encourage you to make a new blog entry for each published work. That way it shows up at the top of the blog as the most recent entry and will get more exposure as such.
