O! Friend unseen, unborn, unknown,
Student of our sweet english tongue
Read out my words at night alone
I was a poet, I was young!
You dont think i wrote that right??
No! I didnt, I’m no where close to giving that sortta rhythm 🙂
I read that poem and i was like Wow! Then a louder ‘Wow’! I guess the loudest might be chaotic, with the creature that lives next door… I have no intention of spending my weekend Behind bars for violating human rights! Lol 😀
A little on the actual poet,
James Elroy Flecker (5 November 1884 – 3
January 1915) was an English poet,
novelist and playwright. As a poet he was
most influenced by the Parnassian poets.
Among his beautiful works, ‘To a poet a thousand years hence’ really got to me so well… 🙂
