Nerd Church - Why I Love WW1 Poetry



Morbid li'l goth-emo child that I am, I LOVE World War One poetry.

I read it all year round: Siegfried Sassoon, Wilfred Owen, Isaac Rosenburg, Ivor Gurney, Edmund Blunden, Rupert Brooke...

*sighs happily*


'Why I Love WW1 Poetry' with poppies


So, seeing as how it's Rememberance Sunday, and it's the 11th of November tomorrow, I figured I'd let you in on the beautiful jewel of life that is WW1 poetry.

(Note: when I use the phrase 'WW1 poetry' I mean English-language WW1 poetry, mainly from British soldiers, with the odd Commonwealth soldier chucked in for good luck.

I'm sure that other nationalities also wrote poetry in a variety of languages and styles, but the WW1 poetry I and most people in the UK are familiar with is that I've just described.)

Micropoetry - August + September 2019



Yes! She still writes Micropoetry! And she's super-late with posting it! 😅


Why am I posting August and September's Micropoetry at the butt-end of October?

Well, because I'm a poorly-organised, hare-brained, book blogger. 😅

Multi-tasking Queen I may be -

(I'm currently juggling writing/putting together this post while doing work (like, adulting-style work,) and listening to a BookTube video on 2x speed)

- but I don't have all the time in the world, and I tend to forget sh**.

Plus, I have to sleep and eat and stuff, and self-care ftw! 😉



So, anywho, here's the Micropoetry:

As always, the poetry is in the alt-text for anyone using a screen-reader, with / marks showing line-breaks.

Micropoetry - June + July 2019



Yes, I still write Micropoetry!

Shocking, right?

Sorry that the Micropoetry's been a little thin on the ground as of late, but *shrugs* sometimes it just goes like that.

Still, I've got two pieces of Micropoetry - one from June, one from July - for ya, so hopefully you'll like it!

As always, the poetry itself is in the alt-text for those using screen-readers, with / marks showing line-breaks.

Micropoetry - April 2019



All the Micropoetry I posted in April!

Yes, I realise it's almost the end of May. Time, life, and all that stuff kept getting in the way.

(I did not intend that to rhyme! Lol.)


So without fussing any further, here's April's Micropoetry:

(As always, the text of the poems is in the alt-text, with / marks showing line breaks, for those using screen readers.)

Micropoetry - February + March 2019



I have a challenge for you for this Micropoetry post, dearest nerdlets! 😉

See if you can figure out what type of music I was listening to with each of these (there's only two, so it's not too bad!)

(This is just for fun, obv.)

I'll give you a clue: I was either listening to rap, emo, heavy metal, or opera.

Micropoetry - January 2019


I realise it's nearly the end of February.

Fashionably late, dearest nerdlets, fashionably late 😎

The first of February's two pieces of Micropoetry is yet more proof that I've been listening to too much Eminem lately 😅

The second one is kind of personal... hopefully it's ok as a piece of poetry too.

As always, the poetry is in the alt-text for those using screen readers.

Micropoetry - November 2018




Ok, I know this is late, sorry, life kinda got in the way, but here it is: November's Micropoetry!


2 pieces for you this time round my dearest nerdlets!

(And maybe I should stop listening to so much Eminem... bit of an attitude here!)

As always, the poetry is in the alt-text of the graphics for those using screen readers 😊

Micropoetry - September + October 2018




Here's my Micropoetry for September and October!

I only wrote one piece in September, so I figured I'd combine the two months.

And, in an action that has surely broken the laws of physics and/or the time-space-continuum, I somehow managed to find time to make graphics for all three!

(I seriously suspect some sort of time-warp was involved. B/c how?!)


As always, for those with screen-readers, the poetry will be in the alt-text of the images, with / marks denoting line breaks.

Micropoetry - August 2018





More Micropoetry time!

And August's Micropoetry from yours truly was just as random-a** and eclectic as ever - enjoy!

Three pieces for you this time, all with graphics.

As ever, if you're using a screen reader, the poetry will be in the alt-text of the images, with / marks showing line breaks.

Micropoetry - July 2018




I swear to God the heat is messing with my Micropoetry.

Again, this month, I've only written two pieces of Micropoetry... they're also a little weird. Like, weirder than usual! 😅



The second one in particular isn't for people who don't like creepy stuff.

Just a heads up!

Micropoetry - June 2018








Only two pieces of Micropoetry for you this month! 

I hope you like them, all the same! 😊



(For those using screen-readers, the alt-text contains the poetry with / marks showing line-breaks.)

Micropoetry - May 2018







It seems we still have some May stuff to finish off my darling nerdlets!

So, I have some more Micropoetry for you! Like last month, I've made up some graphic-y image-y things for two of them.

No promises for the future - this is totally a 'when I feel like it/when I have time' thing, but I hope you like the graphics anyway!

If you're using a screen reader, the poems with graphics have the poetry itself as the alt text, with / marks showing the line breaks.

Micropoetry - April 2018








Yes, it's halfway through the month before I'm doing last month's Micropoetry round-up-type-thing, but I have an excuse this time!

Due to my laptop breaking on the last day of April, I got a bit behind on post-writing (and let's face it, I was hardly Ms Punctual to begin with!)

So here we are in the middle of May, looking at April's Micropoetry!






I've done something a little different this month - some of my Micro-poems are in a graphics-type format.

I'm not sure whether this is something I'm going to carry on with, or even if I'll have time to do it again for other months, but I thought I'd give it a shot!

The poems are in the alt-text of the images, with / symbols showing the line breaks, for anyone using a screen-reader. 😊

Micropoetry - February 2018

Yes, I know, I know, I always end up posting these half-way through the next month. But it's because I'm awesome, obviously 😎

There's a huge mix of poems this month, because my head is clearly a randomly varied place 😅

Here's my Micropoetry, then, from February:

Micropoetry - January 2018

Yes, it's half-way through February. But when has that ever stopped me from doing a Micropoetry wrap-up? 😎

Here, then, is the Micropoetry I wrote in January:

(Quick warning: the one for 22nd January came out as more of a downer than I intended!)

Micropoetry - November 2017

Yes, I know, I know, November seems like a distant memory by this point.

I was busy, ok? (Like, reeeeeeallly busy!) So I haven't had chance to finish up this post 'til now.

But that's ok - the poetry's still the same! XD

Here it is, hope you like it:

Micropoetry - October 2017

Note to self: try and get the micropoetry wrap-up done before the middle of the next month 😅

...my time-keeping skills suck.




Hopefully my poetry skills make up for it 😎

(See what I did there? Lol. I'm such a dork! 😁)

Micropoetry - September 2017

OK, I know it's half-way through October, but unfinished business and all the jazz!

So let's un-unfinish this unfinished business! Here's all the micropoetry I wrote in September:

Micropoetry - August 2017

I wrote three pieces of micropoetry in August, and somehow they seem a little... different to what I usually write...?

I think I like them though - they're strong (if I do say so myself, lol.)

Whether they're good is another question; decide for yourself:
