World Poetry Day 21st March

Today is World Poetry Day so what I thought might be fun is for us to use this platform to share a poem – preferably one you’ve written yourself and also one that is suitable for children. It can have been published before or it can be a brand newie.

All you need to do is send me your poem along with a pic of yourself and any web links that you’d like to share.

I’ll start things off with a little poem of mine called Wherever – published by The School Magazine [Touchdown] in 2014.

And in case you are interested I created the graphic in Canva. I love Canva!
