Return of The Jackdaw's Nest

Well, sort of. NaPoWriMo has ended for this year, and I'm pooped -- too pooped to post a new entry here on May Day. So, for the moment, I'm going to post a link to an essay of mine that's just come out: "Marin Sorescu's Poetry: Some Observations" in the new issue of Avatar Review. It's much more detailed than the earlier post I did here on Sorescu and I hope will pass muster until I can begin making new entries in a couple of days.

And as a bonus, my favoite May Day poem and one of the finest short lyrics in English:

Corinna's Going A-Maying


Comments:
Hi Hedgie,

I l-o-v-e love this poem, and have for three decades. Thanks for putting it up.

As I was reading it this time, for the first time, I put together that "Corinna" is the same name as in the old rockabilly/blues number that Muddy Waters does so well, "Corinna Corinna". I went searching for that just to hear it again, and bumped into John Lennon's version on this page: Untitled. What a treat. It's about the 20th song down, and on the left.

Anyway, I'll have to dig into my CDs and find Muddy Waters doing it.

Thanks for getting me going.

Yours,
Rus
