Book Spine Poetry

img_4068I saw this on Twitter a while ago and thought it a fun thing to do – basically, you make a poem from book titles. Here’s my attempt:

I capture the castle,

The daughter of time;

Away with the fairies,

Memory and dream


The dark is rising

Whispers underground.

Foxglove summer;

The new rulers of the world

As to what it means, I guess that’s open to interpretation. πŸ™‚ I know what it means to me – what do you think?

    1. Thank you! It’s a great idea, isn’t it? Wish I could take credit for it but I can’t, I saw it on Twitter a while back and thought, I have to give it a try πŸ™‚ Glad you like the poem, too.

      1. Yes, you end up with piles of books around the house, shouting ‘don’t touch those!’ to your bemused family. (no this didn’t happen to me, no really it didn’t haha)
