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
