Yesterday was World Poetry Day. I am ashamed to say I tend to buy poetry books on the basis of how pretty the cover is but I gave this one to my husband in an uncharacteristic romantic gesture on our wedding anniversary. I can't pretend I understand what it's all about but they are very beautiful and I rather like this one about a flea.


  1. John Donne is my very favourite poet - The Flea is not so much romantic as an invitation to sex! He was a bad boy in his day but then wrote some beautiful poems to his wife. We had 'The Goodmorrow' read at our wedding.
    The book cover is beautiful x

  2. is it?! shows how much we know!

  3. Nice blog. I'm on a bit of a mission to get my favorite classic poem up in to my top ten posts so it shows on the sidebar. So it would be great if you would have a look. Ozymandias
