We love words. As J.K Rowling so wonderfully wrote, ‘words... are the most inexhaustible source of magic we have.’
We love words regardless of their format; novels, screenplays, song lyrics or poetry to name a few. The right words, in the right order, and most importantly at the right time, have the ability to create an immense impact.
Bearing this in mind, you can see why we love this wonderful poem from our clever friend Jo Miller at Bespoke Verse. Written for the book lovers among us, it pretty much describes our lives here at Bookishly HQ.
On Mondays I am lost for ages
In the new best seller’s pages
Tuesday night is all too fleeting
At my lively book group meeting
Wednesday, there may be some friction
Unless I read some Science Fiction
Thursdays, it just has to be
Short stories or biography
On Friday over lunch and dinner
I’m buried in a Booker winner
Saturdays are perfect days
For reading poetry and plays
And Sundays, how the hours dwindle
When I’m busy on my Kindle!
Bespoke Verse offer lots of incredible poems, many of which can be personalised entirely to your wants and needs. Find them at bespokeverse.co.uk.
Louise was lucky enough to receive two poems written especially for her and Mr Bookishly by Jo.
Happy National Poetry Day Birthday to Louise Verity…
Happy Birthday to a rarity
A bookish, baby-growing Verity
A batty pal beyond compare-ity
Who never demonstrates temerity
And makes cool things with great dexterity.
As always, thanks to you for reading and also a big thank you to the very talented Jo and her wonderful team at Bespoke Verse.X
