More from this week’s Featured Poet: McGuire

You’ve already met McGuire and read one of his poems, and you can find out more about his creative processes when I interview him tomorrow. In the meantime, here’s another of his poems…

Summer Biscuits

Five children sun about in the sun,
searching for their mother
who has fallen asleep in the
back garden with slight sunburn.
They will sneak into the kitchen
and steal three biscuits from the biscuit tin.

    I love the poignancy of this and the brave repetition. The last line always gives me a chuckle when I read it!

  2. Annie Says:

    outrageous!! It drives me crazy! Did they have to split them, or did they take three biscuits each!?

    (I love not knowing)

    Annie — I’m so glad someone else wondered that!!
