Over on The Millions Tumblr, they have been posting some lovely poems made up from the titles of books arranged in sequence. Such a wonderful idea that I couldn’t resist joining in. This despite the fact I own only about 20 books (though some more are in storage at my parents) and D’s book collection is mostly limited to legal textbooks and theory (one of which I did manage to incorporate). Here’s my effort:
Stop what you’re doing and read this,
True things about me,
Who was changed and who was dead,
Remembrance of things past –
The final problem,
No easy fix,
The sense of an ending.
Who’s up for joining in, either on their blog or sending one over here? If you’d like me to post yours here, send me a photo and the poem to wheresthebread[at]hotmail.com
Can’t wait to see more, either in my inbox or across the web.
