Not Waving But Drowning

I love poetry, though I can be fairly picky, and my tastes vary considerably!

I find this poem by Stevie Smith so evocative and haunting, it somehow stays with you, long after reading it.

  1. Thanks for visiting!
    There’s another one I like called Voices Against England In The Night, which has a verse which goes:

    England, you have been here too long,
    And the songs you sing are the songs you sung
    On a braver day. Now they are wrong.

    I find Stevie Smith so interesting as a poet, I think it’s a pity she’s not taught more in school.
