World Poetry Day

My attempt at a poem (this is why I don’t indulge!)


It’s World Poetry Day
Today, they say.
And I feel under duress
To put pen to press
And dive head-first into the fray.

But, like most times, I know
When I have a go
At writing a poem,
I fail.
It’s not ‘cos I’m shy
Or unwilling to try,
Oh no, that’s a far cry
From the truth.

What happens is this,
I become all of a tis
Trying to find words
That rhyme.
My muse says ‘don’t try’
Let sleeping dogs lie,
Have a cup of tea
And a biscuit instead.


Wordsworth, eat your heart out! 

My apologies 😀
