What is this poem about?
The internet is bristling with answers to that question.
If it's an academic answer then it will probably aim to make some sort of sense - or, at least, deliberate not-sense. It might even present some evidence, as well.
As for the rest of us, who come to the poem with ignorant, open minds, this poem is of a breadth and scope that encompasses...
...well, pretty much the whole of everything.
Here it is in full.
Good Morning - Midnight -
I'm coming Home -
Day - got tired of Me
How could I - of Him?
Sunshine was a sweet place -
I liked to stay -
But Morn - didn't want me - now -
So - Goodnight - Day!
I can look - can't I -
When the East is Red?
The Hills - have a way - then -
That puts the Heart - abroad -
You - are not so fair - Midnight -
I chose - Day -
But - please take a little Girl -
He turned away!
Whatever it means, it's inspired plenty of other artists. Two more works called Good Morning Midnight coming up soon.
Word To Use Today: midnight. It's not hard to work out where this word came from. Both mid and night arrived via Old English. The Old English spelling of night tended to be niht.
