Today is National Poetry Day,
And I have something I’d like to say.
Poems, they come in all shapes and sizes,
An obvious statement, I realize this.
There’s a sonnet, haiku,
Narrative, and limerick, to name a few.
No matter the format of their verse,
A poets work has a purpose.
Each word and each line be perfectly timed,
So reader and writer can open their mind.
Consider this poem a friendly reminder,
That we could all be a little bit kinder.
So, take the time you and others deserve,
To carefully and consciously choose your words.
…just for fun:
A reminder that there’s poetry everywhere…and it’s a small world after all.
