In a poet’s pantry you will find

Ingredients of different kinds:

    A jar of metaphors and rhyme:

    Try them if you have the time.

 

In this small tin – well what’s inside?

Let’s get it out.  It mustn’t hide.

    Sizzle frizzle -  look what’s here!

    It’s crispy onomatopoeia.

 

Look!  Ballads – rhythmic - lyrical –

And this one’s quite satirical.

    A jar of love, a tin of fun –

    And nonsense too for everyone.

 

Alliteration?  On the shelf –

I’ll take a little for myself.

    Magic, mystery -  witchcraft too?

    Yes, they’ll make tasty poems for you!

 

Rhythm?  Yes, take lots - that’s fine –

My poems will bounce along the line!

    Stories?  Yes, I’m sure you’ll know –

    But that’s enough!  It’s time to go.
