National Poetry Day: rhyme time, ode to the road (ahead): 7 October

(Poetry, of course, doesn't have to rhyme) What are your favourite poems or poets? #NationalPoetryDay

#NationalPoetryDay is just around the corner. Having another thing to look forward to — well, that’s a tonic, as they might say in Ireland.

Reminds me of Seamus Heaney, the Irish poet; he’s a favourite of new US President Joe Biden, I learnt at the time of his inauguration. (Oh, and that helped me name the new dog.)

Do you have a favourite poet or poem? Or do you find poetry off-putting?

Here’s a blog about just that: “If you like words and you like music, you probably like poetry”

Back to Thursday 7 October. The aim of #NationalPoetryDay is for us to enjoy, discover and share poetry. What’s not to like after all that time apart? (Pesky pandemic.)
