Project 52 ’11 2: My Walk to Work.

January 9, 2011

The last (indeed the first) poem I posted on here was about the hell of being unemployed. The second poem is about the joys of my walk to work, as being as I now have to walk to work every day. It’s a one-and-a-half mile walk which takes me about 25 minutes and encompasses some surprisingly varied scenery, all of which I’ve managed to ignore in favour of some generalisations about the seasons. Oh well.

The poem relies heavily on assonance and alliteration and has developed, unintentionally, into half-rhymed couplets. I think it would be a good idea to pen a sister piece which details my walk from work which, while essentially the same, I think I could get some different perspectives from and maybe make a more interesting piece.

It is, as ever, untitled.

I cross great acres

To perform my daily labours;

I walk in dawn in

Spring and Autumn,

I tread light and step slightly

Across the frost and frozen Winter ices

And Summer’s bright-skied early sunrise

Lets me know my life’s a life alive.
