National Poetry Day 2011

The event of today

Is National Poetry Day,

And this year’s theme

Taps a competitive stream,

On the subject of ‘Games’,

Recreational aims,

High spirits and fun,

Second to none,

During night-time or day,

Home and away,

In competition or jest,

Inspiring the best,

On fields of green,

To the digital screen.

So if you’ve got the time

For verse and for rhyme

Why not take a quick look

At our own poetry nook?

Even if not to inspire,

Then simply admire!
