Tell American

Welcome Tell!


If you have got to tell


Ring it clear like a bell


Make it funky and kinky


In prose and verse like a ditty


Let the radicals have this,


With a voice like this,


You can force a decorum


And create an open forum.


So with the strength of youth


And the love of the truth


Tell it like it is...


This is your chance to tell


You might not have another


Tell The Tell Americans.

Fascinating poesy pulling along at an engaging pace
Magical and haunting. Bittersweet, like so many of your poems, Linda. We are soul-mates, all of us....
Maybe I've something to look forward to; I can't remember ever experiencing what the poem describes. Just when I got to thinking I'd seen it all. Good description.
Linda - I cannot tell you what a fan I am of your work. I loved all your poems posted here but I absolutely LOVE this poem. It's poets like you that engages people who would otherwise find no interest in the art. Thank god for you!
I feel like your poems reach to the core of the human experience, our interactions with one another, our place in the world and nature, and our natural desires. I stumbled upon a Pastan book at a used book store and now I can't get enough.
