Poetry Bus,3/26/11 " What it is not

It is not a fairy tale
or Broadway play.

A "Warmer" clue: It was not just
in Black and White.

Animal, Vegetable, Mineral  ?
Nonexclusive;  all and even more:

Not a tribute to just one person
It was not just about old men or women,

The events were not all fiction.
It wasn't all sad

or set on Easy Street.
It was not my all time favorite,

But possibly second.

Great take on the prompt Izzy with the week that's in it. I watched the film years ago, no doubt it will be on again now.

I'm so dense today. Even with Socks' clue I am clueless. I'll have to return tomorrow.

I've been racking my brains (I came up with Gone with ther Wind) and then saw the labels on your post. What is it with you and horses? Works well as a poem though!

I give up! LOL

Lovely, lovely poem and beautifully underwritten. Looking back now, Taylor seems more a force of nature than a woman. 'Cat On A Hot Tin Roof' is my number 1.

National Velvet ?????

I admit I had no clue what movie it was, but I did figure out it was a movie-do I get partial credit?

izzy said...

Credit all around- "National Velvet".

She was my VERY first (REAL) love. I dreamed about that "girl-who-talked-with-horses" for MONTHS after I had twice seen the film. She was a DARLING! Elizabeth, please know that I still LOVE (not lust!) YOU, my first forever!

I would have never, ever guessed.
Haven't even seen National Velvet!
Neat poem.

You know, I instinctively picked up "National Velvet" at the library the day that Elizabeth Taylor died, and I hadn't yet heard the news.
