Poems of the week

September 14, 2010

Here are some poems written by Louis MacNeice at the age of seven, quoted from Jon Stallworthy’s MacNeice biography:

O parrot, thou hast grey feathers
Which thou peckest in all weathers.
And thy curled beak
Could make me squeak;
Thy tail I admire
As red as a fire
And as red as a carrot,
Thy tail I admire,
Thou cross old parrot.

O Monkey though thou art stuffed
Thou hast very often roughed
A night out in the wild forest.

    How are the Tigers? You have not posted
    in awhile. Are you working on new stuff?
    Have you heard the new Momus tunes
    from that fourthcoming ep? They are
    really charming. I played The Ambient
    Postman again a few weeks ago on The
    Worried Waltz.

      It just so happens that I’ll be re-shaping and adding to this blog this very week. The new Momus songs are good, aren’t they? I’d have happily heard a whole album’s worth of stuff in that manner.
