The Sand Lovers

There was this little poem which appeared in a poetry appreciation book which I had in school that got stuck in my mind ever since.

I wonder if this makes sense to you as it did to me(with a bit of experimental typography from my side).

Nice visual. Might want to title it 'Dog Daze', to use a cliche. Woof!

Hi! Being an animal lover, and particularly dogs, I felt the poem has really got a lot of pathos in it. Seems to be created by Woke? If that's so, kudos to you!!
On the other hand, it is also a very sad poem especially with the antique, restored B/W film effect you've succeeded in giving to it! I feel it is a sort of emotive piece that has been given life by your graphic designing! Very good item for a poster.
I'd though have loved it more if the line brreaks were different... but again I'm not a copywriter... so no offence!!

Not really. As I have mentioned in the post, it is some obscure poem that was there in my school poetry book. I dont even remember the author. But it definitely caught my attention.

I see what you mean by the line breaks. But more than aesthtics, the difficulty in figuring out the sentences ony makes the ending more interesting, I thought. ;)

Yes... you're right indeed! As I mentioned I'm not a copy person - not even a creative person as such... Would see some more of interesting stuff on this blog perhaps?
