Today’s poems are about children in honour of my new nephew Harry Christopher Willing, and also for all my friends who are juggling their jobs, their children and their home life in these difficult times.
Poet’s Day continues with three poems by Robert Herrick. I had planned to choose poems about Easter but on reflection, the poems I found all seemed to be very religious in nature and didn’t inspire me, so I abandoned the idea.
I thought I’d post two or three poems each week. Poems that I’ve enjoyed, poems that I used to read to Nicola, and poems that seem to be appropriate. I’ll talk a bit about the author of the poem, and why I’ve chosen it. I’m calling it “Poet’s Day: Going from Bad to Verse” 😉
