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
below sky, above ground
beneath stars, beyond earth
suspended in silence,
This poem by Andre Corterier was found at the end of his Explorer Ultralight owner review at backpackgeartest.org.
“With breath of wind blowing through branches,
hopes again of sun and storms,
- good winds for your travels.”
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.
A Special Message to Our CustomersWe know this is a tough time for everyone out there. So many plans have been disrupted, there is so much uncertainty and there is a lot of news to cope with every day. We just want you to know that we are here if you have any questions or concerns about your new order or a Hennessy Hammock you've had for a while. Our team has always all worked from home (Vancouver, New Zealand, Galiano Island, Kauai) so everything is normal in the office.
Our shippers in the US, Canada, UK, and EU have been in touch and all have plans for making sure orders go out on time. That said, there may be a few disruptions because of local situations. We hope you'll contact us if you need any information about your shipment.
Let's hope that things get back to normal soon, and in the meantime, that there'll be some chances to get outside in our hammocks for some quiet time. -- The Hennessy Team
