Original Lyric Poems

Lyric poetry is not my main poetic genre — that is epic — but it's something I've been working at most of my life off and on. Most of my efforts are in English, but I've also tried writing in Latin and French. See also my translations into English of Juvenal, Propertius, and other ancient poets.

Political poems, love poems, song lyrics (for The Roberto Rosenman Quartet), and the truly miscellaneous.
The joys of composing in a truly beautiful, albeit dead, language.
Only a few here, mainly song lyrics written for Erik Satie's early piano pieces (Gnossiennes and Gymnopédies).
