Titles attract readers to writings,
Some are exciting while others are biting.
Some are successful while others repel
The best ones create an intreaguing spell

For they are our bait.  We chose one and wait.
Will it make many readers line up at the gate?
We hope so and yet, we should never forget
Great titles are something we'll never regret

(c) 2005 Henry L. Lefevre

All so Very true. Very well written and said.

Truth indeed! Sometimes the hardest thing to put on a poem is the title because one wants it to say it all in so few words. Thank you, Henry. Love and peace. Regis

I am with Karla and then for some of them it comes to me. Because of a certain song. I try to write about what a particular song means to me and its relationship to the story. Others I let the words of the poem or article dictate the title.

titling my poems is always an afterthought with me, i grab a line or a thought from it and run with it...i'll have to start thinking about it more. i know if it sounds sexual, it often attracts but how do you have a sexy title for a poem about something mundane?
Reviewed by M. B. 2/9/2005
This is SO true. It's the titles that pull the reader. It's the first aspect of the written piece we see. And as the old adage goes: The first impression is everything.

Reviewed by Lisa Hilbers 2/9/2005
Very true! I just don't seem to have that magic knack for great titles..
Thought provoking write this one is though!
