As our new year begins,
We turn to gifts for those who choose
To read poems, both night and day,
Even if you’d rather play.
We start with a plate of A Poison Tree
By William Blake, whose majesty
In verse is almost unsurpassed,
Depending on the one you ask:
Next we celebrate Dickinson,
Whose poems move us deep within.
What better cover for their iPhone 5
Than Hope Is the Thing With Feathers, right?
And our post wouldn’t be complete
Without a Shakespeare gift that’s neat.
We hope the notebook with Venus and Adonis
Will help inspire your beloved:
(And, quoting Shelley on music,
This mug gets honorable mention.)
Now we’ve reached our series’ end.
Happy holidays to all our friends.
