The last of three posts about metaphor. If you’ve missed the other two then you can find them here:
And here is the the summing up – the last word:
Opens the door to doubt,
pricks logic’s tight balloon,
lets light in, darkness out,
confuses silver pennies with the moon,
turns on lights in empty buildings
rips the covers from every bed,
offers dangerous liaisons
between the living and the dead,
treads the wires of contradiction,
turns lead to gold, makes truth of fiction.
If you have any comments on this three- stage post, then, as always, they are very welcome.
