Poem Up at Dovecote

This very sweet fairly new literary journal Dovecote has published one of my poems in their 3rd issue.  Don’t you think the journal name is beautiful? A dovecote is a house for doves. I found this photo of a very old dovecote in the Utrecht province of the Netherlands on my old friend Wikipedia.

A place to house birds. A bird is often a metaphor for a poet. Because of the singing, ya know?

Well, oddly, my poem is not a singing sort of poem, but more of a shouting one. Here’s a different look at poetry than many people, especially people who don’t read a lot of poetry, hold.

  1. Congratulations, Luanne. The poem may have been a big noise, but it flowed melodiously. Our early twentieth century Doves Press made a significant contribution to the Arts and Crafts movement.

  2. Beautiful poem, Luanne. Congratulations on the Dovecote publication.

  3. Congratulations! I’ve always loved doves and I loved your poem, too!

  4. Congratulations, Luanne. Wonderful poem–there are certainly many types of “big noise.” I love the journal’s name, too–and doves (and pigeons). 🙂

  5. I’m really happy for you, Luanne. Well-deserved success. Love the picture of the dovecote, and I agree, it’s a beautiful name for the journal. Now the journal is even more beautiful because it has your poem in it.
