Two poetry quotes I discovered this week.
1) I’m sure you’ve all heard this one before – but it’s my first time, so I have to share it.
I had been working the quote onto a photo of our SavvyCat – but as my son pointed out, ‘That’s more for a joker…’ so the spider stepped out as the poet, and SavvyCat became the joker that he is!
2) This one made me laugh – found at skreened.com.
I’d actually been expecting something about punctuation… but this works. 😀 Funny – but true, too! Alignment of a poem is such a big part of its success. It is amazing how a line break can change the weight of words – and impact on the pausing and emphasis when someone else is reading your words. It is one of those magical things about poetry – when someone crawls into your head and reads words you have written exactly as you have heard them read in your imagination. ❤
