Hi everyone!  Welcome to our OpenLinkNight !   This is your opportunity to link 1 poem of your choice as this is no prompt-day.    Here is summer poem for all of you: 

Bed in Summer

Robert Louis Stevenson1850 – 1894

In winter I get up at night   
And dress by yellow candle-light.   
In summer, quite the other way,   
I have to go to bed by day.   
   
I have to go to bed and see          
The birds still hopping on the tree,   
Or hear the grown-up people’s feet   
Still going past me in the street.   
   
And does it not seem hard to you,   
When all the sky is clear and blue,   
And I should like so much to play,   
To have to go to bed by day?

If you missed the announcement by Bjorn Rudberg last week about our plans for the dVerse Anthology, its here:   

The poems for the anthology will be created in the following way:

For each prompt and OpenLinkNight, the bartender will select a few poems and the bartenders will jointly select one poem that goes into the anthology. Therefore every linkup is a voluntary submission to the collection. Of course we will ask for permission before including any linked-up poem, and you should never feel that the link-ups become competitions. We will not do any announcements, but communicate privately. We expect to continue this throughout the autumn, and hopefully we can make this into a wonderful collection for you all.

To join us for Thursday’s OpenLinkNight, which happens every 2 weeks, here’s how to join:

See you at the poetry trail.
