Categories/Genre of Poems on this site

P1130317

 

On this page I have allocated categories to the poems.  These are not completely rigid and some poems are repeated under more than one category/genre.

You will also find that at the end of most poems you will see the words “posted as” and clicking on these tabs will show the other poems of that genre.  [ Those categories might not co-incide completely with those on this page]

If you click on any of the titles within the categories here, you will be taken direct to that poem

 

YOU CAN ALSO LOCATE THE CATEGORIES OF POEMS FROM THE DROP-DOWN MENUE LOWER ON THE HOME PAGE and the Font Size on the Categories Listing below the drop down menu represents the proportion of the various categories to the total postings.
