Poetry Breakfast

Beginning March 20th, 2016 Poetry Breakfast will once again serve a little poetic nourishment every morning. Start your day with our new expanded menu. Poems, of course, are our specialty. But we will also be serving a fuller menu that includes poetry related creative non-fiction such as letters to and from poets, essays on poetry, and anything else that might feed a poet and poetry lover’s soul.

Prelude to Innisfree – A Poem by Patricia McGoldrick

Prelude to Innisfree

Long before I read Yeats
I planted not beans but
pieces nine of garden green onion
on thick slices of homemade bread

Three rows by three rows
all green and white
on smooth creamery butter spread

Summer sandwich delight!

Morning Crisp at the Cottage – A Poem by Patricia McGoldrick

Morning Crisp at the Cottage

We stayed up late.
Sitting back
in our yellow Muskoka chairs,
to see the stars,
we were graced with the Northern Lights,
all green and flashing.
Sleep followed
with a constellation of dreams and
Milky Way stars.
Topped with mugs full of morning coffee
for sunrise on the lakeshore
at McKellar,
we looked out on the new day.
