World Poetry Day 2018 - Poems We Love

World Poetry Day 2018 - Poems We Love

21st March is World Poetry Day. A dedicated to promoting the importance of the reading, writing, teaching, and publishing of poetry. To mark such an important day, we thought we’d share with you some of our favourite lines, from some of our favourite poems; lines that inspire us, make us think, and most of all, make us feel. Words after all, are ‘our most inexhaustible source of magic’.

If - Rudyard Kipling 

If you can dream and not make dreams your master; If you can think and not make thoughts you aim; 

If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster; And treat those two imposters just the same. 

Still I Rise - Maya Angelou

Just like moons and like suns, With the certainty of tides, Just like hopes springing high, Still I'll Rise. 

There Is A Pleasure In The Pathless Woods - George Byron

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture on the lonely shore. 

Oh, The Place You'll Go - Dr. Seuss

You have brains in your head, You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. 

93% Stardust  - Nikita Gill 

We have calcium in our bones, iron in our veins, carbon in our souls, and nitrogen in our brains. 93% stardust, with souls made of flames, we are all just stars that have people names. 

Hope Is The Thing With Feathers - Emily Dickinson

Hope is the thing with feathers - That perches in the soul - And sings the tune without the words - and never stops - at all.
