Poetry in Song
(photo from Marcelo Noah)
National Poetry Month is here
Shift your brain into high gear
Ponder a song that was ere a poem
Plenty to choose, I'm sure you know 'em
In the comments have them arrayed
After nine you'll hear some played
Here's what we played:
Simon & Garfunkel "Richard Cory"
Edwin Arlington Robinson "Richard Cory"
Dum Dum Girls "Rimbaud Eyes"
Arthur Rimbaud "The Drunken Boat"
Sinéad O'Connor "I Am Stretched on Your Grave"
Anonymous "Táim sínte ar do thuama"
The Waterboys "Mad as the Mist and Snow"
W.B. Yeats "Mad as the Mist and Snow"
