Jason Reynolds’ blog made me aware that today is World Poetry Day. So, I decided why not record a reading of one of my favorite poems in the world today. So, here it is:
This Is Just To Say

I have eaten
that were in
you were probably
they were delicious
and so cold
I wanted to post a light-hearted song today. It’s a song from the point of view of a cat. John K Samson has recorded several other songs about the cat too, which I put in the playlist below.
And here is Frank Turner’s cover:
My father does these on Thursdays, but I want to do it Friday at eleven o’clock at night. This poem is technically a love poem. It is a poem about love. In fact it’s right there in the title.
I plan on doing a few more recordings of other peoples’ poetry, and maybe of mine.I am working on a few different projects right now. I might even be published again in a literary journal which I will not name. Anyway, have a nice day.
Hello, it’s been a while since I’ve written anything on this blog. I’ve had some writers block lately (I know, “writers block is just an excuse bla blah”). This post is just to let you know i am still alive and I will be back to writing on this blog soonish. Also, Hi Mom. That’s about all I feel the need to say for now. I’ll see you in the future (that’s right I’m a time traveler). Have a nice day.
