I'm not sure I've ever recced a fanpoem before, but [livejournal.com profile] stuttermoan's Neville-centric sonnet Mum and Dad (G-rated) is quite a good one. It picks up the theme of Neville's forgetfulness and links it to his parents' loss of identity in a very sensitive and multi-layered way.

Wait, I think I have recced a fanpoem before... Yes, I had to go find it: fat again (Teen, Sirius/Remus), a free-verse poem in the style of cummings, written many years ago by [personal profile] bowdlerized, whose presence in the fandom is sorely missed.

I wouldn't mind writing some poetry myself, but I wouldn't know where to start. I only know how to do prose. When I read a good poem it's like a magic trick — I don't know how they're doing it!

My mom did calligraphy as a hobby, and I'm looking through her notebooks so I can take some of the finished pieces with me. She wrote out a poem I didn't recognize, so I looked it up, it was this one:

Wallace Stevens, The Snow Man )
