In another poem

In another poem, I swim the English Channel
Meet my love halfway across

In another poem, I play pool
Miss school, am a fool

In another poem, an unruly sun
Pokes through my curtains

In another poem, I wear a necklace
Of visible kisses

In another poem, I wander hillwards
But not that lonely

This is not that poem

Each couplet references a poem I had read the week I wrote this poem. Can you work out which poems? I admit, the first one will be tricky…….but the last one should be easy-peasy!

  1. What a delight! Thank you for a smile on this day I needed a smile. I love how playful and clever this poem is, and appreciate the nod toward poets and poems (that has me digging through the poetry section in my brain to spot them all)!
