Hello there friends.
I’m now working on Day 10 of National Poetry Month and have managed to use the prompt over at NaPoWriMo HQ for Day 10 also, which was to write something based on weather related jargon.
I have therefore selected a poem as inspiration for tonight’s found poem that is based on the weather and gone with Edith Sitwell and her classic poem “Still Falls The Rain”.
You can find the lyrics to the poem here, along with the poem also being read by Edith herself, which is another treat to enjoy.
And finally here is my own found poem, hope you all like it.
“The Gold Spark In The Dark” by David Ellis
The sound of the heart
Is changed in the rain
Where hopes breed
At the feet of the night
There, the gold spark in the dark
Still flows from the thirsting heart
The fires of the world
Crown sounds of
A child among beasts
Love my innocent light
