(& on a more lighthearted note…)


Poems can ruin your sleep

rattling round inside your head

throwing parties on your pillow

chattering underneath your bed…


When you’re trying to nod off

poems may decide it’s time

to send your brain off searching

for a Wow! word or a rhyme.


If in the dark you hear a frantic

banging at the door

don’t be surprised to find

a simile or metaphor.


So if you hope to sleep well

have less bother overnight

trap your poems down on paper

and lock them out of sight.



It’s World Poetry Day – hurrah for poems! Even though they may drive you crazy…
