I've been reading The Poets' Grimm: 20th Century Poems from Grimm's Fairy Tales for quite a while now. There are so many good pieces in it. Today I'm sharing a poem by Neil Gaiman.
InstructionsThe round up is hosted by Sara Lewis Holmes at Read*Write*Believe. Do stop by and take in all the wonderful poetry being shared this week. Before you go, be sure to check out this week's poetry stretch results. Happy poetry Friday all!
by Neil Gaiman
Touch the wooden gate in the wall you never
Say "please" before you open the latch,
walk down the path.
A red metal imp hangs from the green-painted
as a knocker,
do not touch it; it will bite your fingers.
Walk through the house. Take nothing. Eat
Read the entire poem.
Better yet, listen to Neil read it himself.
