Musician Paul Kelly Argues That Poetry "Enhances and Heightens Life", as I Slog Through a C.Day Lewis Book of Poems Considering Walking Away from Them?πŸƒ πŸ“–πŸ–‹

I've tried, but
poetry just doesn't do it for me Paul ... nor 
Shakespeare's sonnets, for that matter.
'Walking Away' comes from the 1962 collection 'The Gate', so that poem in the You Tubes above wasn't from my C.Day Lewis book of poems from 1943-1947.
From BrontΓ« Country to a
Byron Bay Brewery Tour?
I was going to give this C.Day Lewis book away with a bunch of other books that I did give away, including Paul Kelly's CD of 
Shakespeare's sonnets, but I thought I would hold on to it and give all of the poems a read first and then if I didn't want to keep the book, mail it to a specialist secondhand bookshop where some reader might appreciate it more than me or someone who picked up the book for free in a neighbourhood book lending library -

While I have tried to get into poetry through reading excellent books like 'Saved by a Poem' by Kim Rosen, which even came with a CD in the back of various poems being read by various people, poetry is just not my bag.
I do like watching movies though, but do find actors as weird as poets when it comes to real life;-)
And while I am a big fan of Paul Kelly's songs, I'm not a fan of Shakespeare and his sonnets.
