National Poguetry Day

Love a poem me read some Larkin just last night to cheer myself up. But  I was joking about about Poguetry and then read the lyric "Rainy Night in Soho". And it's one of the few pop songs that poetic on the page (pop's poetic don't get me wrong but most of the time it needs the music)

Now the song is nearly over
We may never find out what it means
Still there's a light I hold before me
You're the measure of my dreams
The measure of my dreams

You're right. Mate of mine read the whole thing out as the groom's speech at his wedding. Not a dry eye in the house.

This song was written about my friend.
