Hurrah for poetry! Check out the National Poetry Day website here.
Here's a poem from my favourite poet (and good buddy) Paul Barrett.
During dinner break at work
I took a quiet and pleasant stroll
Into Sixteen sixty-eight.
The smell of timber still in air
I walked around an antiques fair
Along Westminster Bridge.
And shuffling in among the crowd
I bought a few old bits and things
From the Fifteenth Century.
I walked back to work,
And sold them (promptly)
By auction (of course)
For a good few thousand pounds.
How very strange! (I now reflect)
That people don’t do things
Like this more often.
