National Poetry Day

It's National Poetry Day, under the auspices of the Forward Arts Foundation.

There are events around the country, and special blog posts by a variety of poets, including Elvis McGonagall
Ugly word.


Redolent of something nasty in the woodshed.

Yet not as flighty as the flibbertigibbet that is “Twitter”.

Apropos of which, a wee verse: “Frankie Says Leave It To The Birds”

You are not a digital Samuel Pepys
Nor the Oscar Wilde that time forgot
Nay, nay, thrice nay
Ooh missus, no, please, Twitter ye not
Today also saw the announcement of the winner of Forward Prize for Poetry: Don Paterson for his collection Rain.
