Read Basil Bunting aloud. Pure music. Start with the odes. Here's a link to his Briggsflats: http://factoryschool.org/content/sounds/poetry/bunting/bunting.ram Takes a bit of getting used to but amply rewards those with patience. In a more American dialect, read Louis Zukofsky aloud. Also pure music (mixed with mathematical figures...) Interestingly, Pound dedicated his Guide to Kulchur to these two "strugglers in the desert" and they all lived together for a spell in Rapallo, Italia. READ THEM Carolyn Kizer wrote some beautiful stuff in the Pacific NW. Logopoeia (net of words) and melopoeia (net of sound) in Roethke's work complex and tight, vide "Far Field", his last poems. Thousands of local poets in and around Seattle. Other than Roethke, not to many huge ones though. Of course the greatest onomonapoeia of nature may be found in Homer's epic Greek when he describes the sea in the Odyssey--polyphloisbius thallasus (accent on the capitols--po lee FLOYCE be us thu LA suss). Say it aloud a few times till you can hear the boyant surf wash onto shore... Mark Witucke Young Poet
