What Do You Think?

Although on July 12, 2019, at the bottom of the page on which “An ACOA’s Confession” appeared, I wrote:

“While continuing to try to continue organizing “my stuff”  I came across a passel of earlier poems.  I don’t know which have made their appearance in this blog and/or d’Verse, but I just felt like giving them a run-through again.  One a Day takes the —what was it?—away. Since I love my Media Library, I think I’ll add a random pix, also. (This must be what happens when you start getting old.)”

I decided this in part because my site has no stability–anything at all could be in the blog (and usually is).  So I decided that for a while at least (until the well runs dry) I could start including a different poem a day-either from my slush pile or maybe newborn.  Thing is, I haven’t been sharing the date written, which may cause someone to think I’m writing and publishing a new poem a day.

Now I feel kinda guilty about it.  What do you think? Am I misleading readers and should I include the date originally written?  I’d appreciate some feedback.

 

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 83 now.

  1. I would add the date if it helps you feel better and so you have a reference.

  2. Giving the date of the poem is probably the right thing to do.
