Last Night I had the Strangest Dream




Last Night I had the Strangest Dream :


Last night I had the strangest dream
I'd ever dreamed before,
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war.


I dreamed I saw a mighty room
Filled with women and men,
And the paper they were signing said
They'd never fight again.


And when the paper was all signed
And a million copies made,
They all joined hands and bowed their heads
And grateful pray'rs were prayed.


And the people in the streets below
Were dancing 'round and 'round,
While swords and guns and uniforms
Were scattered on the ground.


Last night I had the strangest dream
I'd ever dreamed before,
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war.


Ed McCurdy


The word POETRY originates from a Greek word meaning TO MAKE. A poet is thus a maker and the poem something that is made or created. No single definition of poetry is possible but some characteristic features of poetry may be mentioned. Poetry has a musical quality with rhythm, pitch, metre and it may use figures of speech such as simile and metaphor. While quite a few poems in this selection are in traditional forms, the unit also includes modern poems that are free from formal restrictions.


Here is a list of English Poems written by various authors. Whatever the question is, poetry may be the answer. Writers say poetry provides them with comfort, a way to express themselves and the discipline of finding the essence with few words. Writing the poem (and finding just the right word) is the measure of success that the authors use. Really good poetry is instinctive. It’s who you are. It’s from the heart. You need to expose yourself to all kinds of poets and you may find your motivation and muse that way. Poetry gets to the core meaning. Poetry expands ideas.
