I know that, for a lot of us, poetry isn’t just a one-day deal. There are plenty of bloggers here on WordPress that practically breath poetry.
But it is nice to see that the art form is being universally celebrated for at least one day a year.
Yes, today is World Poetry Day.
In light of this occasion, I would like to share with you one of my favourite poems. Invictus by W.E. Henley is the poem I turn to when I doubt myself, when I’m feeling down, or even just for fun! (Yes, just because I like poetry doesn’t mean I’m always sat in a dark corner somewhere feeling sad.)
Do you have a favourite poem? If so, tell me in the comments below.
