World Poetry Day

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?

Marc Bolan reads “A Ship Of Rhythm”

In 1969, Marc Bolan published his first and only book of poetry entitled ‘The Warlock of Love’. Every Saturday on Jason’s breakfast show at 07:50 am – it’s tranquil time – a time for poetry on the radio. Let the stresses and strains of the day…wash away!

Happy Valentine’s Day!


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!
