H


I am writing a poem for every letter of the English (or, if you prefer, international standard Latin) alphabet, this NaPoWriMo.

You can find the poems so far under the following links: A B C D E F G

On Monday I stumbled across this beautiful diagram of the letters' histories by UsefulCharts  - have a look.



'H' is derived from a symbol for a fence! Now I think it's a stile.

H

Here is a hare.
He hears your heart.

“Hello”, puts forth the fair-haired hare,
“have to rush… horribly behind
for a hugely himportant happointment”.

(That’s how you think you heard it
in your human head. What he said
was holy - hard to echo here).

“…have to rush…
Heavens!
Hades!”

he hops, hurriedly,
under a hurdle in the hawthorn hedgerow.

Hmm…
