After a year or so of neglect (the result of my now resolved insecurity in publishing my poetry, that work of my mind, heart and spirit – even of my body, on the internet), I have decided to clean up kappesmuse.com, and claim absolute ownership of it as the domain in which I will house all of my poetic creations past, present, and future. My intention is to settle each of my longer poems, or each of my collections of shorter poems, within their own separate pages, as opposed to the impermanent posts which I have been releasing them in, which can be found directly below my site’s banner photograph of The University of Western Ontario. There you will see links to the following pages:
-Home, where you can view all of my current and proceeding posts.
-About, regarding myself as a Romantic Boy-Poet.
-Contact Byron N.M. Kappes (self-explanatory, and I do encourage all who visit to contact me with any questions, concerns, or simply to discuss what I hope will be a shared passion between us – Poetry).
And, most importantly, the Poetry itself:
-Juvenile Poems, a selection of poems written during the advent of my career as a life-long Poet.
-Cadence: A Poetical Dramatization, (a radical re-rendering of the very first poem I ever attempted to create)
-The Vineyard, and Other Poems, which is a brief collection of lyric poetry written within the past year.
I hope that you will enjoy the current selections.
The Poetry that you may look forward to:
-Jezebel, a Story in Four Cantos, of which I have competed three and am about to commence upon the fourth and final.
-All For Show, A Mock Epic Satire, a longer poem written in a style adopted very loosely from Pope, with Byron’s Don Juan firmly in mind. As yet, All For Show, my most ambitious project to date, is less than half finished.
-The Fair Sisters Three will be given a page of its own,
as well as
-The Absent Muse
That sums the poetic output of the past three years of my life. My only hope is that you, the readers of my work (whoever you may be!) will find, if not anything else, enjoyment in what I have here offered you.
