The thing about poetry...


Poetry is a funny thing

It can cause debate

Or make hearts sing

It can take you to

A wondrous place

And brighten up

A moody face

It can make you smile

Or make you fume!

And sometimes even

Make you swoon

It can make you cry

And make you shout

Or, sometimes, be 

Just about nowt!

It can make you think

And make you ponder

What lies beyond

The great blue yonder


It's all our fragrant

Words & dreams

Spilled out upon

Those eager reams 

Like hungry, little

paper teeth

Gnawing to find

What's underneath!

Good one, Stephen. 'Like hungry, little paper teeth' - maybe that's it!
