Today (3rd October 2013) is National Poetry Day. It is a nationwide celebration of poetry, aiming to ‘shake poetry from its dust-jacket and into the nations’ streets, offices, shops, playgrounds, train stations and airwaves’. This year’s theme is ‘water, water everywhere’, which is one of the one of the nation’s best-known (and most-frequently misquoted) lines of poetry. To celebrate this day we have found some weird and wonderful water-themed titles. We also have some weird and wonderful poetry title posts. Just search for ‘poetry’ on our blog or click on the word ‘poetry‘ in the tag cloud.
