Found Poetry

 

There had been nursery rhymes, there had been recititations learned for Sunday School, possibly even the possibility of Peter and Jane reading books but the first unofficial poem I found was on the label of the HP Sauce Bottle.

LA SAUCE HP

EST UN MELANGE

DE HAUTE QUALITIE DE FRUITS ORIENTAUX

D’ESPICES

ET DE VINAIGRE…

Did I know it was a found poem? Could I understand it? No, reading was quite a new activity for me. Did I love it? Yes. Does it still make me smile on a cold February morning. Yes.

That’s found poetry for you…
