Halcyon

By RH Peat


© RHPeat — 4/27/2021
Form/ Descort/ No fixed lengths or order/ 32 Lines
Intent: write a mythic story.

1. Halcyon: a mythical bird said by ancient writers
to breed in a nest floating at sea at the winter
solstice, charming the wind and waves into calm.

2. A descort: a poem has different line lengths, meters,
avoids rhyming with other lines , no refrains,
and that goes for stanzas as well. In other words
each part of the structure is different than the rest
in some way.

The Unsettled Hat

By RH Peat


© R. H. Peat — 7/2/98 — 8:11 PM
For: Dinggedichte/ 7 couplets/ 14 lines


A Dinggedichte:
Diggedichte = A type of poetry concerned with the description of objects from
within rather than from the point of view of the observer. Early examples are
to be found in the poetry of C. F. Morike (Auf eine Lampe) and C. F. Myer
(Der romische Brunnen). As a form the (D.) is fully developed in R. M. Rilke’s
(Neue Gedichte--1907). These are parodied by Christian Morgenstern in certain
of his (Galgenlieder.) Based on Goethe’s (“Die Schone Bleibt sich selber selig:
-- Beauty rests content with itself) and Morike’s )”was aber schon ist, selig scheint
es in ihm selbst”-- But that which is beautiful seems (or shines) content with itself)
concept of beauty, (D.) -- a name first givern to the genre by K. Oppert -- deifies
the object by stressing its self-sufficiency and its imperviousness to change. The object,
to which a pure state of being is attributed, is said to be “separated by chance and time”
(Rilke). The theory underlying the (D.) is implicitly stated in Rilke’s essay on Rodin
where (Skulptur) and (Ding) are treated as synonyms. This explains the close relationship
between the (D.) and the art of sculpture. Although, strictly speaking, the term (D.) refers
only to German poetry of the 19th and 20th C., certain parallels can be drawn between
it and the art of the Parnassiens in France (with its emphasis on sculptural hardness)
and that of the imagists in England and America (with its craving for spatialization). –
K Oppert, “Das (D.),” DVLG, 1926; W. Rehm, “Wirklichkeisdemut und Dingmystujm: Logos,
19 (1930) E. Feise, “Rilkes Weg zuden Dingen,” (Monatshefte, 28 (1936); H. Kunish, Ranier
Maria Rilke und die Dinge (1946)l;F, Martini, “(D.)” in reallexikon, 2d ed., I,. U. W.
