Today is another piece from the the popular series of „Findings of a paper trash diver“. This wonderful book I found a few years ago in the paper trash behind the house together with a few dozen others really interesting books mainly from the 60s and 70s and all in English.
I’m sure it would have been very interesting to have a chat with the owner of all these books but somehow I had the feeling she/he might have passed away and somebody had thrown out all his books. Sad.
Anyhow, this book is a wonderful treasure box full of popular well-known poems and some more rare findings. It’s fun opening it at random, finding your poem of the day.
This is what I’m going to do right now and post your the random poem for today. Enjoy 🙂

Robert Gernhardt Gedichte 1954-1994
I’m not really a fan of poems so don’t have a favorite book. Nevertheless, there are some pomes/poets I really like and Elizabeth Barrett Browning is very high up on the list.
