Merry Christmas And Happy YouTube Videos

Hello Poets and Poetry Lovers

Merry Christmas! This is the last issue of Hyperbole this year. So I'm going to keep it short.

November was not a good month for World Class Poetry. Unfortunately. My Twitter account was hacked and I couldn't get in for most of the month so we're a little light on the #twitpoem project this month. In addition, my hosting company - on Thanksgiving Day nonetheless - deleted my blog and database. I still haven't restored it, but I'm working on it. Soon, I'll have new blog posts.

Meanwhile, you can enjoy the latest book review at World Class Poetry. More will be on the way soon.

Also, a treat for you: Two poetry videos! If you can't see the embeds, visit my YouTube page and watch them there.

Disillusionment of Ten O'Clock

I decided I'd read Wallace Stevens' poem "Disillusionment of Ten O'Clock." I hope you enjoy.

Sonnet To Liberty

This time I'm reading Oscar Wilde's "Sonnet To Liberty," with the help of my grandson Nathen, who seems to be preoccupied with sucking on a dead cigarette lighter. He's hot like jet fuel!

Connect with me on YouTube. I'm WorldClassPoetry.

And that's it for this month. See you next year. Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Seasons Greetings!
