My To-Write List

Riddles

A Liturgy

Lives - probably in unrhymed 5-stress lines, drawing on sense-impressions/external objects. No personal pronouns. Agricultural/fatalistic/sober.

An Unsweetened Zodiac

An Horatian Ode on Walking

A poem about talking to a hedge, drunk

A poem about a Byzantine emperor

Mellors without the Chatterleys

A poem about moles

A poem drawing on a couple of MR James stories - The Mezzotint and one other - haunted country house fare

This reminded me of the 'List of Necessary Items' riff we did. With a couple of tweaks, it is a poem in itself (as I have, in fact, done with the Necessary Items thing - my ones, obviously, not yours...).

The thing abut making a list like this is it rather guarantees that most of the items on it will never get written...

I'm now thinking that the one about an emperor might be mainly about Barbary lions.
