1688: Spoken In Stockholm

Poets noted in his address – a list –
Keats – Hopkins – Frost & Chaucer
then Owen – Bishop – Lowell [bow
to] Kavanagh – along Raglan’s Road
But Stevens & Rilke required heavy
ink / Ducked into Dickinson & Eliot
& then around MacLeish on [far] to
Akhmatova & then off to Yeats – via
Celan – Beckett & a nod to Orpheus
But it’s W.B. who finishes his speech
