The poetry corner

Into the lull between Thesaurus Day (the 18th) and Penguin Awareness Day (the 20th), I thrust two bits of poetry taking off from images on Facebook: Make Big Money (brought to me by Kyle Wohlmut) and The Long Room, Trinity College, Dublin (brought to me by Joelle Stepien Bailard):

(#1) AMZ: Poems got me where I am today

Poems got me where I am today

Flourished within me
Commandeered my will
Had me
Clamber to the vertiginous
Tip of this green headland
Awaiting transfiguration

(#2) JSB: Les livres sont nos amis

Les livres sonts nos amis
Les fourmis sont nos amies
Les fourmis sont mes amies

    It’s nice that Ms. Ballard is collectively addressing her audience as “sir”. Well, for the men in her audience, anyway.
