20 PoemsThe School of Life
Using rhyme and rhythm and all the tricks that make words stick a poem pins down an elusive sliver of experience and shows us it's true importance. Or it makes a wise point with wit, like this quirky lesson in cheerfulness from Adrian Mitchell:
When I'm sad and weary
When I think all hope is gone
When I walk along High Holborn
I think of you with nothing on.
These short poems are easily remembered, so they come to mind at the right times. When we posses them, they live with us.
