We are celebrating Valentine Week with Poetry and Book Love. And so we plan on sharing as much poetry as speaks to us this week. Here is a poem that I found from this collection of poetry that I borrowed from the library:
As most of you may know, I have a special affinity with Carol Ann Duffy after hearing her read her poetry aloud during the Singapore Writers Festival last year. And so when I saw a poem written by her included in this collection, I pounced on it, and it’s a Valentine Poem too! I found it interesting that instead of the usual roses and chocolates, the poet decides to give an onion instead.
I took a photo of the page and edited it using a photo-editing app.
