Hurray! It's National Poetry Day.
I have always been interested in poetry.
They made it by The Nile in days of yore
And by The Ganges and the Mekong too...
The world we know
Would be so very different
Poetry facilitated the carrying of water
Native Americans developed crude poetry
While ancient Chinese methods were finer
And in The Valley of the Kings
They placed poetry in their secret tombs.
Just as we are of clay
So too the poetry we use -
It clinks and lasts forever
- If you treasure it.
But all breakages must be replaced
So handle with care.
