|Hello, friends. In anticipation of National Poetry Month, I've created a video of my poem "Gawain's Rap." |
I trust you know the story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, the medieval romance on which this rap poem is based. Though the poem, in its own way, tells the story well enough.
This poem "Gawain's Rap" was originally published in the Winter 1989 issue of The Wooster Review, published once upon a time by the College of Wooster in Ohio. It later appeared in my first poetry collection, Dragonfly (1994).
Thanks for watching the video. Hope you enjoyed it. Would you please leave a comment below? I'd love to hear what you think. Look for a blue link below that says "Post a comment"; if you don't see that, look in the red line below that starts "Posted by" and click on the word "comments."
See you back here in a couple of days for National Poetry Month? Let's all write a poem every day in April. Ingat — take care, everyone.
