"It has been well established, there are many more poets than there are those who actually read poetry. I do not remember my source, but I believe it. I try to follow Eliot and Pound. After them, Bunting, Lorca, Apollinaire. Since they are considered Modern, I must be considered a Neo-Modernist.

— David Francis Smith

...Neo-Modern, David Francis Smith has worked alone for more than three decades, perfecting an art that too few have had an opportunity to experience first hand. It is the intention of this web site to share the art of poetry, and its complete experience by partaking in the joy composed words offer when spoken aloud.

Today he lives and writes in Canal Winchester, Ohio.
