This Was Once a Love Poem – Friday 26th August 12:30 to 14.30 ONLINE Course




Online Poetry Writing Class

Class Level – Beginner and intermediate friendly

Class Description – How do we write a love poem that goes beyond cliché and stereotypes? How do we build on the love poem tradition and not be held hostage by what a love poem should be?

This was once a love poem,
before its haunches thickened, its breath grew short,
before it found itself sitting,
perplexed and a little embarrassed,
on the fender of a parked car,
while many people passed by without turning their heads.

From This was once a love poem by Jane Hirshfield
