National Poetry Day

Today is "National Poetry Day" and a theme for today is Heroes and Heroines. A hero of mine is the poet and author Thomas Hardy. I wrote this short poem about him.

Thomas Hardy

Thomas Hardy
Cider and Ale
Summer Winter
Sunset and Gale

Man of letters
Darkling Thrush
Schoolteacher crush

Shorn of Emma
Seeking her ghost
Trudging homeward
Wafer thin toast

Stone-bred mason
Critics pet hate
Jude then Obscured
Novelist's Fate

Dorset's dreamer
Touching nature's
Urge to frolic

Poet's Corner
Funeral Cart
Wessex Pastures
Grow from his Heart
