The Song of the Shirt

Thomas Hood is a Romantic era poet who doesn't get talked about much these days, although his work was very popular in his day, and some of it remains memorable. It's probably because he was a writer of light verse, which is never a good career move for a poet.

Hear me read his "Song of the Shirt," a much heavier poem than is typical.
