The Breeze / a poem

I was never destined to be a poet, my friends.  A writer, maybe, but never a slap-down poet.  However, strangely enough, I was inspired to write this one the other afternoon as I listened to the wind in the trees outside my bedroom window.  I don't blame you if you cringe a bit when you read it. ;)  I read a book called 'The Roar on the Other Side' this year for school which was for students who want to write poetry.  I used some of the techniques I learned from there, here, but it still isn't perfect.  Let me know what you think in the comments!

  1. This is gorgeous! I love the lines "Bring them fumes of bygone Junes; Of springs in far-off lands."

  2. Oh Sophie! This is beautiful!

    Let me tell you a secret, no one was EVER destined to be a poet.
    I have always loved words and thinking in depth about them, thats my style as being a writer. Everyone who has a certain style is a writer. And an artist, and a poet, and a sing-songwrighter. You just have to find your style! I think you already know it, but if your waiting for something anytime, think about what you write and how you write it!

    No one is ever destined to be a poet, I wasn't. Well, yes, I would have dreamed that someday I would 'mess around with words' as a tiny girl. But I never thought the words would come so FREELY.
    Thats what happens when your writing a poem. Your words come FREELY.

    Does that make sense?

    LOVE IT

  4. I couldn't see a a comment box on the about page so I thought I'd say here that I am also homeschooled, and like you my favourite things are lonely country bike rides, Dickens, photography, sketching and old novels!
