nmoira Posted June 25, 2012 Share Posted June 25, 2012 I initially misread helena's post, X-Post: What's your latest favorite poem?, but caught my error before I posted the following: My least favourite poem is "Low Tide on Grand PrÃ©" by Bliss Carman I've loathed this since I was forced to analyze it in high school, a loathing only reinforced every time I decide to give it "just one more chance." First stanza: The sun goes down, and over all These barren reaches by the tide Such unelusive glories fall, I almost dream they yet will bide Until the coming of the tide. And yet I know that not for us, By any ecstasy of dream, He lingers to keep luminous A little while the grievous stream, Which frets, uncomforted of dream-- No matter how I read it, in my head, aloud, with funny voices, with serious voices... it just sounds awful. If only he'd thrown in an "effulgent." :tongue_smilie: So, what's your least favourite poem? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
