Our Favourite Poems

April 30, 2016 § 1 Comment

Today, NaPoWriMo is coming to an end once more after 30 days of writing (some good, some bad) and hopefully also a lot of reading and appreciation of poetry (both new and old.) To mark the end to the month, I hope all of you will share some of your favourite poems with me, whether these are poems you have written yourself, or that somebody else has written… or maybe both!

Here is a poem that I love by Roger McGough:

i wanted one life
you wanted another
we couldn’t have our cake
so we ate eachother.

Alternatively, a poem that I loved reading during NaPoWriMo was “and the trees are burning” by authorunidentified.

the ending

is a bridge

towards new beginnings.

Wilted and broken on the corner of Sycamore street

I lie withering away to nothing –

weather the cold and rain,

travel miles and miles upon the wind,

but in the end I am far too frayed

to be patched up again.

In the eye of a storm

I stand alone,

waiting.

Everything falls apart

in a blink.

Down below the river blue

she gently floats away

thinking all the thoughts of you

but too afraid to stay.

I won’t forget our February escapades –

falling in love under barren trees,

kissing in our winter coats –

until everything came crashing down

in the rush of April showers.
