Babs/Dinah, friend
It is, in USland, National Poetry Month. And while I'm not USian, it does mean that my friendspage is rather full of Pomes Wot People Like.And I'm nothing is not compliant to blog fashions.

Here is a sample from a book sumerianhaze gave me for my birthday, by Christopher Matthew. The book itself is called Now We Are Sixty, and if I need to tell you to whom the entire book is a tribute, then you clearly didn't have my childhood.  This is not necessarily my favourite poem, but it is one of the ones reproduced on Amazon's Look Inside feature, and therefore I hope I'm not inadvertently violating copyright by reproducing.

Left her
Flat.
Dotty had a
Great Big
Snifter of

And that (said Dotty)
Is that.
