One of the greatest poets, ever, in my opinion, and many of you may agree, Robert Frost said,

“A poem begins with a lump in the throat; a homesickness or a lovesickness. It is a reaching-out toward expression; an effort to find fulfillment. A complete poem is one where an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.”

Poetry, is the most beautiful form of expression after a heartfelt silent-prayer. While the world celebrates World Poetry Day today, as declared by UNESCO, we at Bookhad want to share two of our favourite poems with you. We hope that they will touch your hearts like they have touched ours, and maybe, make you write one yourself. After all,

“A poem begins in delight and ends in wisdom. ”

A poem of love,
of loss,
of purple moors
and of a heart toss.
A poem of ribbons
of moonlight
a poem of a love bare
Once there was a highway man;
A highwayman who is still there.

The Highwayman – Alfred Noyes

A poem of the wind,
And of tired feet.
Of broken hearts,
And of warm grass.
Of rabbits, of corn,
And the thrushes’ song.
Of the blue sky,
Of daffodils,
And the nostalgia it brings.

The West Wind – John Masefield

Bookhad Wishes You A Happy Poetry Day!
