NPM: #27–of imagery and such

Amy Lowell doesn’t quite get the press like Emily Dickinson does, although Amy did receive a Pultizer for her work. Very much influenced by the Imagist Movement, Lowell, like Ezra Pound, captures the essence of a scene in only a few words. ┬áSo much is left unsaid, which is what makes this poem so complete.

Over the shop where silk is sold
Still the dragon kites are flying.
