Well, I’ve just been informed that today is World Poetry Day!
So, if you’ve ever thought of writing a poem, but didn’t manage to – maybe today is the day to give it a go?
Well, what can I say?
It’s World Poetry Day!
Poets around the globe,
Will be stroking their ear lobe!
Thinking – ‘jeez’,
How do I make this bit rhyme?

Today we are obliged to be romantic
And think of yet another valentine.
We know the rules and we are both pedantic:
Today’s the day we have to be romantic.
Our love is old and sure, not new and frantic.
You know I’m yours and I know you are mine.
And saying that has made me feel romantic,
My dearest love, my darling valentine.
by Wendy Cope (1945 – )
Got my valentines card through!
