As a child, I was interested in Poetry, and that interest grew throughout my teens, into my twenties and beyond to the current day.
In a previous post, I mentioned how much I love Libraries. I have lost count of the number of poetry-related books I have taken out of libraries over the last 45+ years.
Somewhere along the line, I acquired a taste for rhyming poetry and it is still my favourite kind, although I am starting the explore non-rhyming poetry of late.
Libraries are still great, apart from the obvious problem of having to return the books!
The Internet is, of course, a Goldmine. I’ve listed some sites at the bottom of the post that readers might like to explore.
Whilst the Internet is a wonderful resource, I’m one of those old-fashioned people who still love the feel of holding a book, and so, over time I’ve picked up the odd poetry book.
I picked up two more books to add to my collection, last weekend.
– The Golden Book of Modern English Poetry – Everyman’s Library – 921.
It features 500 Poets.
– Selected Poems and Letters of Emily Dickinson – Edited by Robert N. Linscott
Reading poetry helps me to tune out from the world. I disappear into the poem and let my imagination run wild.
On August 2013, I started to write my own poetry. I write to explore my thoughts and feelings that I have about life, the Universe and everything.
Poetry is really ‘Music to my Ears!’
