JOSIE'S POEMS 1
Articles regarding poetry and the writing of poetry designed to help writers and teachers
Note: There is COPYRIGHT on all of my poems. Almost 400 of my poems were published by an educational publisher in 2010, and the poems were chosen by teachers and children in many schools in West Yorkshire. These printed books are not now selling as he has retired and sold his business. Oxford University Press are now publishing my poems and CGP Books. Approximately one third of poems are for every age group, including teenagers and adults. Look in every index.
COPYRIGHT ON ALL THESE POEMS AND ARTISTS' ILLUSTRATIONS
NEW POEM: BRITISH VALUES. This poem links very well to the most popular poem today (120 visits): WE'RE BRITISH AND WE KNOW IT. Whilst I lightheartedly speak of cricket on the green, the tinkle of tea cups and scones for tea and all that people suppose is British, in my new poem I consider what British values are hopefully, and thank God every day that I live in a country where I and others around me place importance on these things. Please do look at both of these poems. Let me know, teachers, if there is a subject you'd like me to deal with via a poem - or perhaps have a story I could put into a poem for your children.
