My friend Jerry has made an excellent suggestion. Since I just shared with you my favorite poem of all (‘Ulysses’ on the post just before this one) why not open it up for discussion. So let’s share our favorite poems. What poem moved you, made you laugh/cry, or changed the way you look at the world? We really would love you to share this. So please, let’s discuss!

It’s a toss-up between
The Walrus and the carpenter
And The Naming of Cats
Both excellent choices. I enjoy Carroll’s word play on this one and especially “Jabberwocky”. And T.S. Elliott is also a good choice too
Hello all, This is Darrylâs friend Jerry. My life has been a journey of travel, the theatre, & poetry. I have had my own
poetry published, hosted poetry workshops & supported starving poets, etc. and with reading/studying thousands upon thousands
I have to admit my favourite poem is probably still the same poem that has been my favourite since I was a teenager (though for
different reasons now). My favourite is Jenny Kissâd Me by Leigh Hunt. I wonât say anything more about it though. However,
whenever I have felt down, (which has been a little too often) all I had to do was recite this to myself and then I felt like the
most blessed person on Earth. This poem looks and even feels like a simple poem with a simple statement, but there is much more
poetic meat here than first observed. Savour this delicacy, and see if you can see the life behind the lines too?
I hope you enjoy, and thanks for reading. Please submit your own. Jerry~
Thanks Jerry. i have to work tuesday so I’ll check that out tomorrow after work.
I love Ulysses, too. Thanks for following my blog and I’m enjoying yours. I’d love to have you and your readers join my writing retreat in June: https://southerngirlgoneglobal.com/2018/11/12/morocco-writing-retreat-summer-2019/
The retreat looks great and it;s in Morocco which would be a great place for it.
