I love performing poetry. Although I find much that is rich in poetry whether it rhymes or scans or not my real love is rhyme and rhythm. I’ll let you into a secret, I also have a weakness for humorous verse, especially if it’s corny; don’t tell anyone else though.

Here are some examples:-

Smoked Herring Days (Geoff Yorath)

 

The Tyger (William Blake)

 

Winter (William Shakespeare)

 

The River’s Tale (Rudyard Kipling)

 

The Microbe (Hilaire Belloc)

 

Antigonish (William Hughes Mearns)

 

Philomela (Elinor Kapp)
