Hey there folks.
We’re on Day 9 of National Poetry Month and as you can see I’m lagging behind.
I’m determined to keep going though and I think most (if not all) of the rest of my entries this month are likely to feature famous poets and poems for my found poetry series, so I hope you are all still keen to follow me on this epic journey 🙂
Here is the official prompt over at NaPoWriMo HQ if you would like to take a pop at the prompt that they have come up with.
As for me, my found poem tonight was inspired by John Donne and his poem “A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning”, you can read his lyrics to it here.
And now finally here is my found poem, thank you for reading and hope you like it.
“Home Be To Me My Circle” by David Ellis
Whisper to friends and say
“Let us make noise of our joys!”
To tell our love of earth
What it did and meant
The innocent cannot admit
Remove those things
Which we love so much
And our souls endure an airy thinness
To move, yet far roam
Home be to me my circle
And end where I begun
