The Poet

Poetry dies
In eyes
Grown dim
With sin.

Thomas rages
At the dying light.
What use are pages
At the final, “goodnight!

      Many thanks for your comment, Eric. I am flattered to hear that this poem contains “hints of Larkin”. I do admire Larkin, but have never (consciously) attempted to write as he did. Best wishes, Kevin

      Thanks, Eric, I can see why the final line might make you think of Larkin. He is a fine poet and “Aubade”, together with “Ambulances” are 2 of my favourites of his. Kevin
