Another poet to love

Looking through poetry sites recently, I came across this little gem, "Faucet Song", written by Sarah J. Sloat.   She is a poet worth following.   She keeps a blog, The Rain in My Purse, and there are links to her poems from there, too. 

Here is part of "Faucet Song":

The faucet is the saddest instrument,
its only song: de-plete, de-plete.

All night, its little fists ball up and fall.

Dud percussion makes 
a shudder of the sink,

makes the soap bar blink
from the milk film of its dish.

It is so interesting, it has been years since I have read much poetry and through blogging I have read so many great poems that I am starting to turn to have a renewed interest.

Thanks for sharing this lovely and sad poem.
