Poem of the Week-Week 1

This is going to be a random choice of mine to be shared with some of my fav set of bloggers (including wordpress users too :P) . I will welcome links and ideas to search / read and chose from your side. Any verse/lines you liked and wish to share, please let em know.  This was originally to be done by Luna so I thought it best to chose a poem from her blog for the first feature :

History and Me [ click to read whole]

I have this book from 1804
it’s the Times newspaper
with strange articles that I  adore.
~
I have bound up tight
newspapers of the first transatlantic Zeppelin flight.
of the first air raid in the us fight.
.
.
.
But if I didn’t have those things anymore
if I couldn’t prove it
would History put someone else’s name
Where mine now sits?
~
I am not saying History is totally wrong
but I think it needs to learn a new tune
to the song.


Keep writing and reading fellow poets !!
Blessed be !
