Poetry

These poems were inspired by a Hennessy Hammock. We welcome more! Once your muse moves you, send us your poem, and we'll put it here.

 


hey my name is jordan and i was looking at your poetry section and thought
it was pretty cool, i have a new addition for it!

Roses are red

violets are blue

I sleep in a hammock

Tents are for fools


 

Suspended in silence

 

under trees, over roots

I float

below sky, above ground

I rest

beneath stars, beyond earth

I sleep

suspended in silence,

I dream.

 
 

This poem by Andre Corterier was found at the end of his Explorer Ultralight owner review at backpackgeartest.org.

 
 
 

 

 

Hammock Haiku

 

“With breath of wind blowing through branches,

hopes again of sun and storms,

- good winds for your travels.”

 
- Anon.

 

 

 


Hennessy, my sweet Hennessy

Away from you, I pine for thee

I miss the rest that rouses me

To write you songs and poetry

 

No more for me the beds of past

The one just tossed will be my last

There is no doubt, the die is cast

The change of plan came awfully fast

 

No more for me a normal life

With dog and cat and lovely wife

And all the noise and all the strife

Where beds are hard and crime is rife

 

I’m off to countries far away

Where all day long I get to play

And when night falls I get to stay

Inside my nest, to sweep and sway

 

So that is how it came to be

That now, though old, I am quite free

From sleepless nights and agony

Thanks to my blissful Hennessy.

 

-J.C.
