It’s International Book Giving Day today!
To celebrate IBGD, I am planning on leaving these books around Singapore today.
Poetry and Book Love
Since we are also celebrating romance through poetry this week, here are two more beautiful poems that I found from this book.
I thought that they are companion poems as they seem to respond to each other’s anguish. Similar to what I always do, I took a photo of the book page and edited it using an iPhone app.
On the opposite page is Chinua Achebe’s poem. A perfect ‘response’ I thought to Amy Lowell’s silent cry of resignation.
“Bear with me my love/ in the hour of my silence;”
Happy Valentine’s Day dear friends! For more poetry love, head on over to Linda Baie of Teacher Dance for Poetry Friday!
