A. Madhavan's last comments on poems and poets

  • POEM: Silent Sleep The Dead by Valsa George (7/22/2015 10:08:00 PM)

    Thanks to Poet Valsa, my Friend who is both a teacher and a writer, I lighted on this
    500th poem she has posted in PH, to share with all of us who like to read poetry, especially
    by people who love literature and its refractions in life's variegated Muses. This
    poem reminds me of Thomas Gray's famous Elegy in a Country Churchyard.. I like Valsa George's lines on the Sleep of Death as a leveller, and wish
    she continues to encourage readers to find ideas and impressions with resonance in our
    modern urban, suburban, new-rich, new-poor lives.

  • POEM: All My Life, A Song by Ananta Madhavan (6/4/2015 9:23:00 PM)

    So pleased you caught the mood. I think a modern composer, John Cage, valued silence as
    a musical interlude. I seldom recapture the Song, but luckily it is not 'a brain-worm' like a
    jingle or a reversal tune of a fancy car. AM

  • POEM: A Sudden Downpour by Valsa George (5/28/2015 12:55:00 AM)

    The poet evokes the surprise effect that a sudden shower of rain, with or without a thunder-storm,
    can awaken for those who resent having to work or just endure the sweltering heat of summer in
    many parts of India. Last night there was such a downpour, and today, in this southern town, far
    from the swathe of a heatwave, but still sweating and self-piteous. I am all for celebration in verse
    like this.
