The Shortest of Poems

It’s National Poetry Day in the UK, and Twitter is full of posts tagged #nationalpoetryday , its nice that for just one day more people are thinking about poetry.

I only know two poems by heart, this one by George Macdonald, The Sweetest and Shortest of Songs.

Come
Home.

And this one from school by Anil Kumar Prasad, A Prayer for Peace.

Einstein’s eyes
were filled with tears
when he heard about Hiroshima.

Mr. Tamihi
Had no eyes left
To show his grief

I’m going to add more poetry to my reading.  It’s all about economy.
