Translation Lost in Poetry

Standard

Poetry is what gets lost in translation. ~Robert Frost
-a nod to his melodious form

Poetry is what gets lost in translation
Words wilt on weathered tongues
Understanding dawns on enlightened minds
Though Monthly turned you down
Those who inspired your greatness
Found America’s laureate renowned

Do not fret over translations lost
Roads diverged or less traveled by
Those reluctant to accept
The ones who dared belie
The likes of TS Elliot, Edward Thomas and Ezra Pound!
Who were they to deny?
