National Poetry Month

April is National Poetry Month

For the first time in many years I will be reading some poetry. It is definitely out of my comfort zone, but I am willing to give it a try. So, in honor of National Poetry Month, I will be reading The Day the World Ends: Poems by Ethan Coen. Anyone else willing to give some poetry a chance? 

To get you more in the mood... 

Serena of Savvy Verse & Wit is once again hosting a Blog Tour to celebrate. So be sure to head on over and check out the schedule to follow along. Lots of fun poetry things going on around the blogosphere this month. 

Happy Poetry Reading!

  3. Shakespeare - Marin Sorescu

    Shakespeare created the world in seven days.

    On the first say he made the heavens, the mountains,
    and the abyss of the soul.
    On the second day he made rivers, seas, oceans
    And all the other feelings—
    Giving them to Hamlet, Julius Caesar, Mark Antony,
    Cleopatra and Ophelia,
    Othello and the rest, to master them, and their descendants
    For evermore.
    On the third day he brought the people together
    And taught them about taste
    The taste of happiness, of love, of despair
    The taste of jealousy, of glory, and still more tastes
    Until they went through them all.

    Then some latecomers arrived.
    The creator patted them sadly on the head
    Explaining the remaining roles were for
    Literary critics
    To challenge his good works.

    The fourth and fifth days he kept clear for laughs
    Clearing way for clowns
    Turning somersaults,
    And leaving the kings, emperors,
    And other poor wretches to their fun.
    The sixth day he reserved for administrative tasks:
    He let loose a tempest
    And taught King Lear
    To wear a crown of straw.

    Some spare parts remained from the world’s creation
    And so he made Richard III.
    On the seventh day he looked about for something to do.
    Theatre directors had plastered the land with posters
    And Shakespeare decided after all his hard work
    He deserved to see a show. but first,

    tired down to the bone
    He went off to die a little.
