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.

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 There's So Much Water So Close to Home" Paul Kelly
And while I am a big fan of Paul Kelly's songs, I'm not a fan of Shakespeare and his sonnets.
