The Thursday Poem



Young Woman Reading by a Window by Delphin Enjolras


Giving Up Smoking

There's not a Shakespeare sonnet
Or a Beethoven quartet
That's easier to like than you
Or harder to forget.

You think that sounds extravagant?
I haven't finished yet -
I like you more than I would like
To have a cigarette.

Wendy Cope
(21st July 1945 - )

from the book: Poem for the Day One
