Poems as Friends

Nominate a poem that has been a friend to you – by this we mean any poem you have read (rather than written) that you can in some way say has acted as a friend to you. Although we know our own poems can act as friends to us it is the exchange between writer and reader that we are exploring.

Follow the links below to tell us about a poem that has been a friend to you. You can tell us in writing (click the red button) or why not leave us a voice message! Alternatively you can email us at

Be sure to include:

1. Title of the poem you are nominating and who wrote it.

2. Tell us something about how you first encountered this poem.

3. What key words or phrases sum up the way it has acted as a friend to you?
