I dont really like poetry so Im not the best to comment.


I like this poem



Ode to "the twins"*



I talk about my boobs a lot
They're the only asset I've really got
I hate them when they get all bloated
I've to treat them like they're egg shell coated
Which isn't ideal in mosh pits
There, they really get on my tits.

Sleep

Though wakefulness my domain
In sleep I remain,
For wakefulness is sleep
One shallow and one deep.

First Sight by PHILIP LARKIN

Lambs that learn to walk in snow
When their bleating clouds the air
Meet a vast unwelcome, know
Nothing but a sunless glare.
Newly stumbling to and fro
All they find, outside the fold,
Is a wretched width of cold.

As they wait beside the ewe,
Her fleeces wetly caked, there lies
Hidden round them, waiting too,
Earth's immeasureable surprise.
They could not grasp it if they knew,
What so soon will wake and grow
Utterly unlike the snow.

Just found this poem through my poetry anthology for english.. i found it really cool. the dreamy, timeless simplicity of the poem. Larkin is so vivid, yet never excessive.

What are your views on the poem??

I think my version of the poem is a great improvement:

Calves that learn to walk in snow
When their mooing clouds the air
Meet a vast unwelcome, know
Nothing but a sunless glare.
Newly stumbling to and fro
All they find, outside the fold,
Is a wretched width of cold.

As they wait beside the heifer,
Her udders wetly caked, there lies
Hidden round them, there for ever,
Earth's immeasureable surprise.
They could not grasp it if they knew,
What so soon will wake and grow
Utterly unlike the moo.



SO WHAT DOES EVERYONE THINK??!?
