Sweet Yellow Dandelion

 

One moment, we are

here

in the green green lawn

like a sweet

yellow dandelion

 

At summers end, we go to seed

and poof flash

boom,

we are off and away

on the wind

 

high above the green green earth

Spinoza's picture

Simplify, Simplify, Simplify!

 

An old English professor that shaped much of the English Department at Cornell always emphasised three words… Simplify, Simplify, Simplify!

 

“Vigorous writing is concise. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts. This requires not that the writer make all his sentences short, or that he avoid all detail and treat his subjects only in outline, but that every word tell.”

That would have been good

That would have been good advice to John Milton.  Alas, brevity was not his strength.
