Poems About Poems

Don't smile you to hear
The topic,
Poems about poems,
Means the poems
We take them, read them,
Assess and come to understand them,
Critically appreciate them
Simply or strugglingly.

I want to write poems about poems
The poems which moved me,
The poems which I loved to read,
The poems I admired and appreciated them,
Can it be not a film about films,
A story about stories?

Let us now,
As the readings are, understandings but myths,
A poem can be about Wordsworth's The Daffodils,
Herrick's To Daffodils, Eliot's The Hollow Men,
Yeats' Sailing to Byzantium, Up-hill by Rossetti,
Tennyson's The Brook and Break, Break, Break,
Arnold's Shakespeare, Shakespeare's My Mistress' Eyes,
Auden's Look, Stranger.

A poem can be about poems, the impact
And enchantment we carry down
As memories and images,
Can be about Herbert's Virtue, Longfellow's A Psalm of Life,
Bunyan's He That Is Down Needs Fear No Fall,
Wolfe's The Burial of Sir John Moore At Corunna,
Spenser's One Day I Wrote Her Name, Wyatt's Forget Not Yet,
Mare's Martha, Masefield's Sea Fever, Lear's Mr.Lear.

A poem about poems, how I read, who made me understand
Just as a memory, a reflection over,
How did I, struggled to understand simply
Or with help from, my experiences of, my feelings thereafter,
On reading, O Captain! My Captain! by Whitman,
Hardy's Afterwards, The Darkling Thrush,
Browning's My Last Duchess, The Last Ride Together,
Plath's Daddy, Hughes' Hawk Roosting.
