Poetry Month: A Collection

Although national poetry month is October for the UK, I thought I would join in the American poetry month.  Do you have any go-to-classics? Do you think lyrics are a form of poetry?  I would love to hear from you! Here are a few of my go-to-classics and lyrical poetry:

“We did the soft wind.


We danst slowly.


We swrld
Aroned.

We danst soft.


We lisin to the mozik.


We danst to the mozik.


We made personal space.”

Without You by Hermann Hesse
My Pillow gazes upon me at night

Empty as a gravestone;

I never thought it would be so bitter

To be alone,

Not to lie down asleep in your hair.




I lie alone in a silent house,

The hanging lamp darkened,

And gently stretch out my hands

To gather in yours,

And softly press my warm mouth

Toward you, and kiss myself, exhausted and weak-

Then suddenly I'm awake

And all around me the cold night grows still.

The star in the window shines clearly-

Where is your blond hair,

Where your sweet mouth?




Now I drink pain in every delight

And poison in every wine;

I never knew it would be so bitter

To be alone,

Alone, without you.










Sweet Thing by Van Morrison (Song)
And you shall take me strongly
In your arms again
And I will not remember
That I even felt the pain.
We shall walk and talk
In gardens all misty and wet with rain
And I will never, never, never
Grow so old again.

Lover You Should’ve Come Over by Jeff Buckley (Song)
Lonely is the room, the bed is made, the open window lets the rain in
Burning in the corner is the only one who dreams he had you with him
My body turns and yearns for a sleep that will never come

It's never over, my kingdom for a kiss upon her shoulder
It's never over, all my riches for her smiles when i slept so soft against her
It's never over, all my blood for the sweetness of her laughter
It's never over, she's the tear that hangs inside my soul forever
