18 April 2019

Today I want to celebrate “Poem in Your Pocket Day” as @eNotes reminds poetry addicts on Twitter.

(April is not the cruellest month, Mr Eliot)

The following poem is number 20 in a poem book written by the Chilean poet Pablo Neruda. Maybe, these verses are the most recited ones by Spanish speakers.


“Puedo escribir los versos más tristes esta noche.

Escribir, por ejemplo: “La noche está estrellada,
y tiritan, azules, los astros, a lo lejos.”

El viento de la noche gira en el cielo y canta.

Puedo escribir los versos más tristes esta noche.
Yo la quise, y a veces ella también me quiso.” (…)

Poetry Day UK (thank you, Pearson Books)

You know, I am much more of a twitterman than a facebookman, however the other day (Monday, I think it was) I came across some information about a Poetry Day in the UK (1) shared by Pearson Books (@pearson). There were 5 options to celebrate that day which is today, Thursday. I have chosen the point 1.

Here you are the poem Morning After written by Langston Hughes. Although it is a humourous poem in tone and despite its mock on a snoring woman, I love one verse included in there. Do you happen to know which verse I am talking about?

Morning After


Langston Hughes

“I was so sick last night I  

Didn’t hardly know my mind.

So sick last night I

Didn’t know my mind.

I drunk some bad licker that  

Almost made me blind.


Had a dream last night I  

Thought I was in hell.  

I drempt last night I  

Thought I was in hell.

Woke up and looked around me—

Babe, your mouth was open like a well.


I said, Baby! Baby!

Please don’t snore so loud.  

Baby! Please!

Please don’t snore so loud.

You jest a little bit o’ woman but you  

Sound like a great big crowd.”
