I would not consider myself a great lover of poetry but its power is not lost on me. When I come across the right poem, it has the power to capture my attention and touch me.
Thought of saving this post until National Poetry Day but since the poem I came across, The Back of the Internet , was so good I didn't feel right holding off that long. Besides it was commissioned and written to celebrate this year’s 25th anniversary of the birth of the world wide web.
I heard The Back of the Internet, by Salena Godden, while listening to the April 24 edition of the BBC’s radio podcast edition of Click. You can listen to Salena recite The Back of the Internet on Click’s website.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
