Some poems will give your heart a lift and others make you cry
And everyone can write a poem but often never try.
A poem is so much fun to write, but needs a little care -
So lift your pen and try to write some poetry anywhere.
Fill your home with poetry and fill your school classroom.
I much prefer the happy poems, not ones of doom and gloom.
Poetry can make you think, but some poems really scare -
But read and write it every day - yes, poetry anywhere.
Do you like scary monster poems or those which make you grin?
Monsters? Witches? Fairies? Elves? - the short, the fat and thin?
Poems of every sort are good, but here’s a tip: BEWARE!
You can become addicted to that poetry anywhere.
The libraries fill their shelves with it, and websites have it too.
It’s fun to read just anywhere - yes, even in the loo!
Prose is fine but surely there is nothing to compare
To JOSIE’S POEMS for you know what: I write it
A N Y W H E R E!
PS: That's not strictly true. I don't write it anywhere. I have a muse who lives in my computer room, and it is only here where I can write a complete poem. However, I do get ideas for them outside, so be careful if you come to Ilkley for YOU may be my next subject.
