Friday Poetry: Franz Wright

Hello!

I hope everyone has got some good plans for the weekend.

My chosen poem this week is by a new poet for me. Franz Wright (1953-2015) was an American poet.

Auto-Lullaby

Think of a sheep
knitting a sweater;
think of your life
getting better and better.

Think of your cat
asleep in a tree;
think of that spot
where you once skinned your knee.

Think of a bird
that stands in your palm.
Try to remember
the Twenty-first Psalm.

Think of a big pink horse
galloping south;
think of a fly, and
close your mouth.

If you feel thirsty, then 
drink from your cup.
The birds will keep singing
until they wake up. 

Franz Wright

Happy Reading
