is the theme for today’s National Poetry Day. I have done posts for this event in the past but not for a few years.
Perhaps the most familiar and certainly poignant, poem titled Remember is by Christina Rossetti. Philp Larkin wrote a poem titled I Remember, I Remember and I’m sure that many people will recognise the first line of Adlestrop by Edward Thomas which goes – Yes, I remember Adlestrop – .
There is a lovely little poem, author unknown, titled The vegetable plot which goes
Remember, remember in dreary September
The fate of the vegetable plot:
Where, all through the season,
For some puzzling reason,
Though weeds have grown, your seeds have not.
Have a good weekend!
