Listed below are links to weblogs that reference J. K. Stephen's Parody of Wordsworth:


Here's some J.K. Stephen trivia - he was Virginia Woolf's first cousin, and had a pathological obsession with her half-sister, Stella Duckworth, at one time bursting into their house brandishing a sword-stick that he used to stab the bread on the dinner table. His behavior became more and more bizarre until finally he was carted off to a lunatic asylum, where he died, but not before being added to the list of suspects in the Jack-the-Ripper murders.

Poets are such a colorful bunch.

Colorful, you're not kidding, LO. And how comes it that you know so much about J. K. Stephen?

I just seem to remember weird stuff. Where I put my car keys, I couldn't tell you.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
