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!
