Poem of the Week 37

Take a Poem

James Carter

 

Why not take a poem

Wherever you go?

pop it in your pocket

nobody will know

 

Or take it to your classroom

stick it on the wall

tell them all about it

read it in the hall

 

Take it to the bathroom

tuck it up in bed

take the time to learn it

keep it in your head

 

Take it for a day trip

take it on a train

fold it as a hat

when it starts to rain

 

Take it to a river

fold it as a boat

pop it in the water

hope that it will float

 

Take it to a hilltop

fold it as a plane

throw it up skywards

time and time again

 

Take it to a postbox

send it anywhere

out into the world

with

tender

loving

care
