National Poetry Day takes place the first Thursday in October every year in the UK. Each year there is a theme and this year it is MESSAGES. Here is another poem of mine on that theme to give you some inspiration.
Message From A Miserable Tortoise
To whom it may concern,
to see me today.
I’m fed up.
You can knock as hard as you like.
I’m not coming out.
Not even for a lettuce leaf.
I’m a hard nut to crack.
An unsociable bone.
Leave me alone.
I’m already booked for the actual day of National Poetry Day, but still have some slots that week, if you want to have me come to your school to kick off the creativity, or any other time of year is good too. Just contact me for availability and price.
