Nobody has commented specifically on the winding down of this marvellous website after its seven productive years in operation. So, because I have commented on so many of its posts throughout that time, I feel compelled now to mark this moment with a few remarks.


Firstly, I wish to say that this particular website has been the most consistently beautiful poetry website I have ever encountered, and that it succeeded admirably in living up to the great ideal of putting the timeless works of contemporary poets above all else.


Secondly, I feel an overwhelming sense of sadness that its time has come to an end. I feel (to quote Michael R. Burch out of context) that 'something unforgettable is past'.

Thanks, Martin! I received both of your emails, and I just sent you two myself. Hopefully whatever the issue was will not be ongoing. I’ve been very happy with my email provider. At any rate, I’m so glad this misunderstanding did not go on for any longer.

So if I am understanding this correctly, will this website cease to operate and be taken down at some point?
