My Favourite Poem #booklaunch #poetry

Is there a more impossible question for a poetry lover than that?

Well, Robbie Cheadle asked it on Writing to be Read, as well as pinning me down to a favourite poet.

That and she reviewed my first book of poetry The Sincerest Form of Poetry were you in need of a nudge to go out, buy it and read it.

So, okay, what is my favourite poem?

Head on over and take a peek and see if you were even close…

About TanGental

My name is Geoff Le Pard. Once I was a lawyer; now I am a writer. I've published several books: a four book series following Harry Spittle as he grows from hapless student to hapless partner in a London law firm; four others in different genres; a book of poetry; four anthologies of short fiction; and a memoir of my mother. I have several more in the pipeline. I have been blogging regularly since 2014, on topic as diverse as: poetry based on famous poems; memories from my life; my garden; my dog; a whole variety of short fiction; my attempts at baking and food; travel and the consequent disasters; theatre, film and book reviews; and the occasional thought piece. Mostly it is whatever takes my fancy. I avoid politics, mostly, and religion, always. I don't mean to upset anyone but if I do, well, sorry and I suggest you go elsewhere. These are my thoughts and no one else is to blame. If you want to nab anything I post, please acknowledge where it came from.

    I studied the War poets extensively in college. I realize today that at that time they were writing only 50 years earlier. I guess it would be the equivalent of my granddaughter reading about the Viet Nam War. It seemed so much further away at the time. I always resonated with the “Death of the Ball Turret Gunner” written by Randell Jarrell about the Second War.
