JOSIE'S POEMS 1
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. Approximately one third of poems are for every age group, including teenagers and adults. Look in every index.

NATIONAL POETRY DAY UK - 4 OCTOBER 2018
The subject for National Poetry Day this year is 'Change'. Teachers/Parents: Take your children to these poems:
But your children will laugh at this poem about a boy who is CHANGED into a fly by a witch: THE BEST PUNISHMENT FOR BOYS or A LITTLE GREEN CATERPILLAR who changed into a butterfly. Then, if you like magic, there are lots of 'Change poems' (changed by magic): THE GREAT RAGANDO OR HELP - when a man changes into a dog or a long story poem: THE LAIDLY WYRM OF SPINDLESTON HEUGH - tells of a princess who was turned into a serpent. I LOVE 'change poems' - don't you? Ooooh, I've just changed into a fish.
