Sharing A Bath With Emily D

Sharing A Bath With Emily D

A Poem by Gee
"

Simple words

"
We shared a bath
and poems too
did Emily and I,
her words long penned
did raise a smile
and also made me cry.
As what she "said"
spoke loud 'bout life
but also hushed on death,
twas beautiful,
so beautiful,
it made me catch my breath.
Then stirred inside
an urge, a need
to pen a simple rhyme,
that'll live but brief
unlike her work,
and won't stand the test of time.

Often read in the bath to unwind after a hard days graft...I'm fully aware of my poetry limitations :))

You've caught a perfect mood here Gee. Intimate and affectionate. I almost wish I was in there with you but it might be cramped. You leave me wishing I could hear the poems -- life and death, there's not much left.
Really enjoyed.
Alan

I think I apologise simply so that Folk realise that I do know how simple my stuff is, unlike quite a few on here who post some right old shite but somehow can't see that it is. If ever I need a confidence booster Margie you'll be my go to lady.
Thank you kindly :))

The whole premise of your poem -- reading in the bath -- is delightful! I love how your title seems a little decadent, but your poem comes across with childlike adoration & playfulness. Please don't apologize for having a simply-stated style. Lots of people tell me they can't understand the unusual words I use & I would love to be able to express myself with simple honesty clarity like this! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

PS -- I'm reading Stephen King's "On Writing" & he says to keep it simple. He can't stand overly ornate bullshit writing that gets in the way of what you're trying to make the reader feel . . .

Cheers Robert. Hope you are well
I’m too clumsy to read in the bath, I would waste a lot of books dropping them in the water.

I can’t help but picture ED sitting on one end of the tub with that stoic, mischievous look she has in her portrait waiting to heat the poems read out loud. Of course she’s wearing her dress in my vision.

This is cool, Gee. I’ve seen several poems dedicated to Emily this week and I love the way each one shows something about the writer and their connection to this mysterious figure of the past. She does activate the imagination.

And your poem captures a certain spirit in the lines of her work and her person. An enjoyable read.

Ha! Good morning backatcha, Gee
Sharing a bath with Emily D. Baths are a great place to relax and chat. Add vino, candles and a few rose petals for added measure. I like this Gee it stretches the imagination and brings her up to date. She has certainly inspired many over the years and will continue to do so. Good job done.

Thank you kindly Christine.
Hope all is well in Berks.
I do envy such people with such talent. I can barely put down two words that rhyme or make any sense. Generally, anything I do is nonsense.
You may not know it, but you too seem to have a poetic soul.
Great write.

Oh, him. Yes, now I remember.
Well, in either case, not a bad piece of work.
Inspiration from an inspiration who was inspired. The saga continues with your words finding new ears and inspiring them to read or write. We are all inspired, and inspiring... No matter what you think Gee.
You captured her essence.

Horizontal rain and black skies. There's no place like home 😀
I believe she would most certainly approve the poem, which is lovely, not ever so sure about the shared bath. Then again.... :))

Only if the tap end is hers :)
Thank you Beccy.
I love her poem, "Ample Make This Bed". It makes me catch my breath, every time I read it.

I think when we're at our most vulnerable, (such as being naked in a tub), we're likely to be better listeners, and absorb what we're reading - at least that's my ten cent observation. A little wine, too!
