Poetry

It seems like I’m always asking about actual books … but what about poetry? Do you read it? Write it? Like it? Not like it? Do you prefer song lyrics?

I quite like poetry and I quite like song lyrics too. Some song lyrics are very poetic such as the lyrics of Nick Cave, Morrissey, Jim Morrison, Michael Stipe.

Some poetry is really good and some of it is really bad. Sometimes I like the poetry of Spike Milligan, some times Dylan Thomas, W B Yeats, Michael Rosen, Sylvia Plath, Betjeman.

I would say that poetry has its place on everyone’s shelf and that people should give it a go, at least once.
