Day 30, National Poetry Month: Two Cities
On this day, April 30, in the year 1859, the first weekly installment of Charles Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities appeared in his (then) new literary periodical All the Year Round.
On this final day of National Poetry Month, here are two poems, "London" by William Blake, published during the French Revolution, and "In Paris with You" by James Fenton.
And here are two YouTube videos of the poems.
"In Paris with You"
I hope you enjoyed National Poetry Month. I wrote only one poem this month, which is about usual for me. And I'm still revising it!
