Day 24 – NanoPoblano – “To Rouse The World, The Sky With Sun” by David Ellis – A Found Poem Inspired by “Aubade” by Philip Larkin

Hey there everyone.

Tonight, for Day 24, as part of my month long found poetry marathon for NanoPoblano, I have decided to pick the very famous poet Philip Larkin as my inspiration.

It was a tough decision but in the end after much deliberation, I went with using his poem “Aubade” as my foundation poem. I have found a video of him reading his poem set to music too, which I have provided below.

If you want to read the lyrics to “Aubade” rather than listen to them then they can be found in the link to Poetry Foundation below. I’ve also included a link to a short analysis of the poem too, which of course is another very interesting aside worthy of a few moments of your time.

Finally, here is my found poem based on the masterful, poignant words of Philip Larkin, thank you for reading.

“To Rouse The World, The Sky With Sun” by David Ellis

Get drunk
At the edges
See what is really there
A thought impossible
When the mind blanks in remorse
Love given, unused
Can take so long to travel anywhere soon
Nothing more true
Being afraid
To pretend we never fear a thing
Fear to love slows impulse down to indecision
Realisation courage is being different
What we know, have always known, we accept
Getting all the world to rouse, the sky with sun
Work must be done
Go from house to house
