Old Poem Saturday – And So to Bed – de la Mare

AndSoToBedWalter de la Mare is usually remembered for his much longer poem, “The Listeners” – and like that famous poem, in the short quatrain, “And So to Bed,” de la Mare leaves us wondering what unspoken thing happened before the action in the poem. For me, it is always so tempting to try to fill in the blanks…Composition and photograph by me.  Have a good weekend!
