Hello. "Convalescence" by Lowell originally redirected to a WS-hosted, indexed version of the poem. Instead of creating a poem from the redirect, you should have instead created a {{versions}} page to showcase your unindexed Gutenberg version along with the version already hosted here. Since your version is not indexed at WS, the only challenge would be what to title it. Perhaps tie it to a text: Sword Blades and Poppy Seed/Convalescence.

Ah. I was not aware of {{versions}} pages. I will research how to structure one of these pages and fix this. Thank you for bringing it to my attention! -Avicennasis (SWMT) 11:03, 17 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Not a problem! Here is an example of a versions page with a version from the Treasury of War Poetry as well as another linked to a text: Sonnets written in the fall of 1914. You don't need to follow the format exactly, it is just a guideline for your consideration. Londonjackbooks (talk) 11:12, 17 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I *think* I got it, but please feel free to change/fix anything I may have missed. -Avicennasis (SWMT) 06:04, 18 September 2015 (UTC)Reply[reply]
You've got it. I placed last name first, although not necessary,—I am merely following another user's (Hesperian) formatting suggestion that I have adopted... And "The Wounded" need not be part of the title for the TWP version; the poem "Convalescence" merely appears in that section of the text. Thanks!
