MARILYN MONROE LOVED POETRY



Marylin Monroe once said she reads poetry because it saves time. When you think about it, it’s an incredibly wise insight. Poetry does save time because it distils experience and emotion into a condensed form that can be easily read. Not only that, it amplifies the meaning of content in a profound way. My favourite poems are still the early work of T S

Eliot such as Rhapsody on a Windy night.

Every street lamp that I pass

Beats like a fatalistic drum

And through the spaces of the dark

Midnight shakes the memory

As a madman shakes a dead geranium.

So, what are the poems that shake your memory? I’d love to know.
