National Poetry Day

What is a Poem?

A poem is a present

You give it to yourself

Find one in a dusty book

nestled on your shelf.

Find one in a face

of a person you don’t know.

Feel one on a windy day

Hear a poem blow.

See a poem in a mouse.

Watch a poem run.

Smell a breakfast poem

when morning offers sun.

You may think a poem

is always made of words.

But poems can be chocolate.

Poems can be birds.

Poems can be secrets

or shouts upon the air.

A poem is a present

hiding everywhere.

Happy Poetry day 1st October.
