World Poetry Day
A little friend enjoying the pre-Spring sunshine
Anyway, this was me trying to put writing there to make it look like a bit of a longer post.. But I thought it'd be a good idea to post, it's World Poetry Day, which is pretty cool. It also happens to technically be the first day of Spring.. I'm sure it came a day early because of Leap Year. (Well, that's M's theory! But it's a good one.) Well today was very sunny, and rather warm. I managed to get outside for a bit and have a wander around the Thames and in a bookshop I often go to, and thought I should read more poetry pretty soon.. Later I remembered what day it was, and thought of which poem I could share. I decided to go with Louis MacNeice's The Sunlight on the Garden, as I'd first come across part of it through a novel. One of the chapters had begun with this quote:
"We cannot cage the minute
Within its nets of gold"
It stuck to me, and I thought it would be a good poem to share today. I hope you enjoy reading it!
