11 thoughts on “Halloween Poems”
Thank you for the poems you have recited in your resonant voice and tone on your YouTube channel, ‘The Treasure Trove’.
Your copious provision of posts and videos means I haven’t yet had time to listen to the Halloween poems.
Last night, I listened to ‘Wilfred Owen : War Poems’. It was truly moving to listen to. I’d say that Wilfred Owen was an empath to write so touchingly and respectfully, honoring soldiers who go to battle. I can only imagine what an empath soldier in battle must go through. Wilfred Owen was a soldier who fought in WWI. He was killed in France in 1918 at the age of 25.
Marvelous ending HG. I do love Shakespeare. Thank you and Happy Halloween! 🎃
RE: the Thomas Moore poem, I did a little reading into the poet and it is a rather sad tale and he was inspired to write the poem upon hearing about the legend. It also reminds me of a number of articles that you have written on KTN blog ie the image on ‘Gypsy : Emotional Thinking’, ‘Poison in Thine Ear’ and KHG Part 3.
Wow, HG. I am learning new pieces of literacy and about the works themselves with you providing these videos on ‘Treasure Trove’. It is so good of you to offer this to people. You are also encouraging people to learn, and think, about ‘life’ as a whole, including parts of history.
I also thought, HG is selecting these poems / pieces of work that have meaning, ie not selected on a whim. You applied thought and consideration.
Dorothea Tanning’s poem points to how women in the 1900s were treated not too long after that, women were ‘allowed’ to vote.
Interesting that narcissism was first “discovered”, or at least, given a name, in 1890.
The ‘All Souls’ poem was funny. Thank you for choosing this one. It reminds me of your ‘Roasting’ videos and the ones about Harry’s Wife. LOL.
‘The Witch’ one was great to read too. I remembered a comment on your blog about ‘mustard seeds’ in a cauldron (LOL). I wrote those words before I read the extract about the witches from Macbeth. Swamped with charm 😉 Thank you, HG 🙂
If I were to vote ‘teacher of the century’, it would HG, hands down. No deviation, no changing this empath’s mind. Sorry Smiffy (aka Mr Smith), HG beat you to the best teacher in my life.
Thank you, HG. You really are the best.
HG These are the highlight of my Halloween. Masterfully delivered, and perfect for the occasion. Thank you!
The last one ❤️🔥
Hmmm……shivering (in excitement) 🙂
I’ll comment on it when I have read it 🙂
I actually made the same mistake when I was a child as the voice in “Halloween Party.” But my outfit was a culturally misappropriating kimono. (now I know better). I also write down events in a planner. This is a very eclectic selection, HG!
Hahaha! “All Souls”!!
“Ok, one more and then I’ll sit down to write this article”-she’d been saying all weekend…
Oooohhhh, perfectly chilling for today!
