Poem

Fire under footfall.
Fire over skies.

Fire on a matchstick.
Fire in my eyes.

Fire holding hunger.
Fire seeking wood.

Fire hiding danger.
Fire feeling good.

From Things You Find in a Poet's Beard by A.F. Harrold

 

It tastes of high clouds

  of crisp cold

     of twilight

 

Poem

I've just invented a flying machine;
It's silver and gold and three shades of green.

Poem

I have your smile

when I look in the mirror I see you

I have your laugh

So when I chuckle I hear you

I have your humour

when I’m sharing jokes I owe it to you

Poem

Summer is the best time

so let me start right here

It’s my favourite season

I wish it could last all year

The sun feels real near

and it can get so hot

Poem

Breathe

In.

Breathe

Out.

Gasp,

Sigh,

Scream,

Shout.

Spread your arms wide and smile

find yourself

find your style.

on the pitch, lightning faSt,

dribble, fake, then make a dash

 

player tries tO steal the ball 

Poem

Billy chased me round the playground
with hands full of fists

Billy yelled at me across the football pitch
with a mouth full of stings.

All the Best - Roger McGough
Poem

I give you clean air

You give me poisonous gas.

I give you mountains

You give me quarries.

 

I give you pure snow

You give me acid rain.
