Celebrating World Poetry Day with Viking

If you’ve been following my blog, you’ll know I love and write poetry. Some of it I share with you and some are written for my eyes only.

I was invited to take part in a campaign by Viking for World Poetry Day – which is today by the way. I was sent a lovely creative package to inspire me which included a gorgeous calligraphy feather pen. It was a delight to use the age old method of dipping the pen in ink and writing.  I think I got a little carried away.

But, the main idea of the campaign was for me to write a poem. So here goes –

I’d Love To Be A Poet

I’d love to be a poet…

And write my thoughts in verse.

Things I see and things I love

And even things I curse!

Poems of love and laughter,

Of luck and of success,

Poems of joy and pleasure,

Of smiles and happiness.

Poems about the river,

Or maybe the babbling brook.

Of clouds on high that seem most nigh,

And eagles and geese and rooks.

Poems of sorrow and sadness

Where I can vent my plight –

Of loneliness and heartache

Of darkness in the night.

I’d love to write great poetry

Of love and Halcyon days,

That bring comfort and contentment

In each and every way.

I hope I’ll be a poet

And live my days carefree

And write of things within my life

That mean the most to me.
