Children on a carousel

Poetry

Sometimes, we just need an easy post. Something that we can pop onto our pages without thinking too much about it. Today, that’s exactly the aim – although you might find yourself completely lost on the interwebs looking for that one poem that steals your heart.

 

Step-by-step:

  1. Find a poem you love, either in a book or on the internet. Maybe you already have a poem lying around that you love.
  2. Look for a photo that matches the message of the poem.
  3. Post it to social media and make sure to add some information after the poem. The poem itself basically is the ‘spark’. The ‘foster’ is why you wanted to share this poem, and the move is to ask people to share a poem with you, too, or to tell you what they think of the poem.
  4. Don’t forget to mention the writer of the poem!

 

Don’t make the foster and move part too long though, try to keep the focus on the poem.

 

My favourite is Dutch poem. I thought it’d be hard to translate it but Google Translate actually did a great job, so here it is. First the Dutch, then the English version! It’s written by Toon Hermans.

 

Geluk is geen kathedraal,

misschien een klein kapelletje.

Geen kermis luid en kolossaal,

misschien een carrouselletje.

 

Geluk is geen zomer van smetteloos blauw,

maar nu en dan een zonnetje.

Geluk dat is geen zeppelin,

’t is hooguit ’n ballonnetje.

 

English:

Happiness is not a cathedral,

maybe a small chapel.

No carnival loud and colossal,

maybe a carousel.

 

Happiness is not a summer of pristine blue,

but every now and then a sun.

Happiness is not a zeppelin,

It is at most a balloon.

 

This post is either a Spark or a Foster post: that depends on how far you want to dive into the ‘why’ you wanted to share this poem. If you decide to keep that very brief, I’d categorize this as ‘Spark’ content. Not that it really matters, but I just wanted to share it, to help you clarify the difference between the two different types of content.

The event is finished.
