(& 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…
