  1. Poetic Wanderings

    I wonder if anyone here would be interested in this? We at BGO have been doing this since 2005 and it's much fun. It's harder to explain than to actually do so here goes : The idea is that one of the members will post up a short extract from a long poem - maybe four or five lines or so, nothing too big or unwieldy - or a short poem. The next person to come along has to post up another extract, from a different poem, which has a word in common with the first extract. (A distinctive, interesting word, please, rather than "and" or "the", or similar ) The person after that posts another extract, which has a different word in common with the second persons extract. Does that make sense? Please post the title and poet of the extract too, then we have the chance to go away and look it up, and maybe discover some new poetry along the way. Also please highlight in bold what the repeated word is. Extracts don't have to be the start of a poem, they can be taken from the middle or end too. Feel free to use such reference tools as you see fit, it's not a test of the poems you have memorised. If you can find extracts with several words, or a short phrase in common with the previous one, then you get tons of extra points, (though no-one is counting!) and you can go around all day feeling very smug! Poetry is, IMHO, an essential part of reading and this way, I've found, that I read more poetry than I otherwise would.
