Poetry Pleases: Homework

Caroline Glyn's poem tells of the aching demands of homework.

There are catherine-wheels behind my eyes
And the air mills round me in tiny sparks;
Dimly through the neon lights I see
The mass of dancing figures on my page.
They twist, they turn, they drag my tired mind with them,
Dancing through a maze which never ends,
Racking my aching brain as they whirl through ...
Dance then! But I can dance no more. I must return
Back to that dog-tired world outside my dreams.
