Take a Poem

Poem from Zim Zam Zoom! by James Carter

Why not take a poem

wherever you go?

Pop it in your pocket

nobody will know


Take it to your classroom

stick it on the wall

tell them about it

read it in the hall


Take it to the bathroom

tuck it up in bed

take the time to learn it

keep it in your head


Take it for a day trip

take it on a train

fold it as a hat

when it starts to rain


Take it to a river

fold it as a boat

pop it on the water

hope that it will float


Take it to a hilltop

fold it as a plane

throw it up skywards

time and time again


Take it to a mailbox

send it anywhere

out into the world
