It’s definitely that time of year, isn’t it? So here’s a question:
How many poems about Museums can you name?
Yes, I will accept a broad definition of Museums (though I don’t think the Hairy Muse would be happy about this) to include Archives, Galleries and – at a pinch – Libraries (though now all my colleagues are up in arms).
Now look at how many my fellow Poets-on-Fire came up with.
And while you’re at it, take a look at the lovely Peony Moon, who’s been posting up lists of people’s favourite poetry books, but who writes about so much more.
On a similar note, don’t you just wish there was a Big Book of Bra Poems? I’ve just written a poem about my first (in those days they used to be called “training bras”. Ugh.) and could’ve really done with some previous Bra Poems to look up to and emulate. How very inadequate my poetry education has been.
