National Poetry Month

It's National Poetry month and our provincial Poet Laureate, Don Kerr has been providing the Saskatchewan Writers Guild with daily snippets of poetry.  It's been refreshing to look forward to those lines of verse that can be anything from inspirational to just plain humorous.  

From a man who has perfected the art of setting poetry to music:

My friends are gone and my hair is grey
               I ache in the places where I used to play”                                                                                                           ~Leonard Cohen, “The Tower of Song”
In SK it's still looking a little too much like this.

And yesterday's verse - another quick laugh to take you through the remainder of the day:
“You made us weep without suffering”                        

Pablo Neruda,Ode to the Onion
