Amplitudes Poem 6 by Alison Croggon

For that it is noble to die of love
Is a wisdom only those who are poor
Can chew down to the core

I like the shortness of this poem. It brings simplicity to an idea that can often be overcomplicated in fairytales. By bringing this firytale idea to a very simple idea it brings a romantic touch to the poem. Almost like that middevial knight in shining armor type love. Something that has been carried over for centuries and centuries. It was even in the film Donnie Darko tonight. Donnie died for a woman that he loved. This is the simpilist form of the poem that has had all sorts of other stories wrapped around it.
