[6-16-2009 Update Insert: Most of what is in this space is now moot. I found out what I was doing wrong and have reinstated Archives and Labels searches. They do work. However, in certain cases you may prefer Labels to Archives. Example: 1976 Today begins in November of 2006 and concludes in December of 2006, but there are other related posts in other months. Note: Labels only shows 20 posts at a time. There are 21 hubs, making 21 (which is for 1976 Today) an older hub.] ********************************* to my online poems and song lyrics using Archives. Use hubs for finding archival locations but do not link through them. Originally an AOL Journal, where the archive system was nothing like the system here, this blog was migrated from there to here in October of 2008. Today (Memorial/Veteran's Day, May 25, 2009) I discovered a glitch when trying to use a Blogger archive. Now, it may be template-related, but I am unable to return to S M or to the dashboard once I am in the Archives. Therefore, I've decided on this approach: a month-by-month post guide. The sw you see in the codes here stood for Salchert's Weblog when I began it in November of 2006. It later became Sprintedon Hollow. AOL provided what were called entry numbers, but they weren't consistent, and they didn't begin at the first cardinal number. That is why the numbers after "sw" came to be part of a post's code. ************** Here then is the month-by-month post guide: *2006* November: 00001 through 00046 - December: 00047 through 00056 -- *2007* January: 00057 through 00137 - February: 00138 through 00241 - March: 00242 through 00295 - April: 00296 through 00356 - May: 00357 through 00437 - June: 00438 through 00527 - July: 00528 though 00550 - August: 00551 through 00610 - September: 00611 through 00625 - October: 00626 through 00657 - November: 00658 through 00729 - December: 00730 through 00762 -- *2008* January: 00763 through 00791 - February: 00792 through 00826 - March: 00827 through 00849 - April: 00850 through 00872 - May: 00873 through 00907 - June: 00908 through 00931 - July: 00932 through 00955 - August: 00956 through 00993 - September 00994 through 01005 - October: 01006 through 01007 - November: 01008 through 01011 - December: 01012 through 01014 -- *2009* January: 01015 through 01021 - February: 01022 through 01028 - March: 01029 through 01033 - April: 01034 through 01036 - May: 01037 through 01044 - ******************************************************* 1976 Today: 2006/11 and 2006/12 -- Rooted Sky 2007: 2007/01/00063rsc -- Postures 2007: 2007/01/sw00137pc -- Sets: 2007/02/sw00215sgc -- Venturings: 2007/03/00216vc -- The Undulant Trees: 2007/03/00266utc -- This Day's Poem: 2007/03/00267tdpc -- Autobio: 2007/04/sw00316ac -- Fond du Lac: 2007/04/00339fdl -- Justan Tamarind: 2007/05/sw00366jtc -- Prayers in December: 2007/05/sw00393pindc -- June 2007: 2007/06/sw00440junec -- Seminary: 2007/07/sw00533semc -- Scatterings: 2008/08/00958sc ** Song Lyrics: 2008/02/sw00797slc ********** 2009-06-02: Have set S M to show 200 posts per page.

Some Information About My Poems Saplings is not a real or even projected book but is simply a heading for poems I wrote early in my life (1953 into 1963). I cannot say the following list is inclusive, but I can say I cannot find a number of the poems listed, even though several were important to me at the time. I especially miss the Lyrielle sonnet-sequence and the first two solitude sonnets, but I rather suspect my having as many as I do is unusual. I should try to be satisfied, but it is in my head that some of the missing poems were examples of my best efforts in the years before I wrote "Symphony". - (1953 through 1959) m = missing "The God-Created Milky Way" (1953-my first) "My Mother" and "Mother" "On Love of Nature" (m) "Treasure" (a cinquain) "I Dream of Life" "I Could Be a Poet" "Too Young" "Light of Love" "Nature and the Goal" "The Mystic Dove" (original version a later poem) "The Red-Breasted Messenger" (even though it's not) "Each Man" "Indian Sue" (may have been about a doll) "An Easter Verse" (now: "Written in a Card") "Profound Depths" (m) "I Met Cicero Prologue" and "I Met Cicero Epilogue" (m) "Spring Song" (m) "The Greatest Love" (m) "Solitudo I" and "Solitudo II" (m) "Winter Winds" (1958-is in my First Pick) "His Goal Was Peace" (about Abraham Lincoln) "Woodland Shades" (preparatory) "Woodland Shades" (first sonnet-it was twice published) "Tom of the Woods" (first ballad) "Triton" (1959-is in my First Pick) (in 1960) "Climbing the Hill" "The Fourfold Chariot Prologue" "Into the Marsh" (published in Marquette Journal) "The Song of Southern Africa for Freedom" "Away, Away" (first version) "Ode to the March Winds" "To the February Snows" "Solitudo III" (published in Marquette Journal) "The Victory Spirit" "Love" "The Scourging" "All Is Spring" "Prologue to Elegies on Spiritual Life" "To a Raindrop" "In Simple Silence" "Prison Break" "As Evening Dies" (first version) "Gray Heavy" "Pastoral Death" "The Meeting" "The Light" (in 1961) "The Lone Pine" "Glen Iris" "Aerual Elegy on Spiritual Life" "Spiriel Elegy on Spiritual Life" "Manuol Elegy on Spiritual Life" "Epilogue to Elegies on Spiritual Life" "The Search" "Untainted Ewe" (just blame Gerard Manley Hopkins) "The Wind in the Willows" "O My God" "Responsio" (a poem in Latin) "To a Lifeless Leaf" "Way Marsh" "Morning Creation" "Dream-Winds" "The Gush of Spring" "Lines Written in Reflection on the Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament" "Replenish Us" "To God and Gardeners" "And so it was" "Emmanuel" "Behind the Silent Walls" (in 1962) "On the Feast of St. Agnes" "Vernaltime" "Ode to the Mid-Month" (first version) "Lines Composed in Meditation" "An Empty Town" "Jesus Bound--Part I" "As Evening Dies" (revision) "Away, Away" (revision) "The Mourning Dove" (revision) "Opposites of Love" "Need It Be?" "To Poets" "Poets of Our Age" "The Blood of Martyrs" "Slowly the Dead-Fall Troops" "A Meditation: Colloquy on Poetry" "Twin Mountains" (m) "My Moldau" (m) "Going North" (m) "The More I Die" "In My Life" "Only Man, with Christ" "Bounds of Love" "In" "To Father Purcell, S.J." "Skyscrapers" "Reflections Upon Looking at My Baby Picture" "Selfishness" "The Plumb" "Lyrielle" and "Lyrielle II" and "Lyrielle III" (m) "When Virgin Verse" "An Humble Garden Fills the Lover's Emptiness" "A Nightingale Ensnared" "The Loved Ones Are a Sea of Death" "Song of an Unfaithful Lover" "We Are Men of the Prairie" "Credo" "Death" "The Park" (a prose poem) "Sonnet of a Maker" "To John Keats" (sonnet "285. October 11th" in my most ambitious work, 1976) "Sonnet to Shakespeare" ("284. October 10th") "Sophia" (m) "An Ancient Farmer I Met on the Road" "To Father" "Since Life Needs Love" "To Us in All" "The Tree Trimmers" "Cold Are the Dead" "Exposure" "God's Power" "A Vacuum Cleaner Happiness" "Metal Salad" "Fragment of Onefor" (an unfinished epic later retitled Justan Tamarind) "A Mysterious Fragment" "Weave a Background" "The Newsboy" "Ode to an Autumn Day" "Soliloquy in Autumn" "The Newsboy's Song" "So Real Does Verse" (into 1963) "Some untitled verses for I Am a Man" "Man Rules Man" "Come Now with Me" "I Give Myself" (later retitled "Lyrielle IV") (m) "We Are Angleworms" "A Man" "Lyrielle V" and "Lyrielle VI" (m) "She is a Tree" "Love's Pressure and Color" "Zoorape" - (I have a sense that more than a few of these titles are better than the poems beneath them.) - Brian A.
