This is a VERY wide ranging subject because there is not one second of our lives but what 'change' is occurring somewhere in the world. This is why watching or listening to the news is so important to us all. This subject could, in fact, be something that would make a little discussion each day of the year. However, here are some of my poems on this subject and I will add more, as I write them. If you particularly like one of my poems about change, why not recommend it to others, with the website details, to: email@example.com with the heading ‘my favourite change poem’. Now I shall list some of my 'change' poems and write some more new ones for you. You knew I would do this, didn't you?
