National Poetry Day

Everyone who knows me knows that I celebrate NPD every year. At the Women's Workshop we invite women to bring in poems on the theme-this year the theme was home. We had flowers, cake and chocolates, and tea from a teapot with a jug of milk.

We had a huge variety of well-loved poems about places which were home.Then the exciting part to create your own poem.Many didn't need a prompt ,but I took Thomas Hood's poem I remember, I remember, /the house where I was born. It was a good takng off point for poems and memoir.

So for NPD tomorrow find a poem you like about home-it can be about an animal or about a place,then have a go and write your own home poem.
