Here we go…”The Flower” by Jenny Joyce

You’re not gonna read it out are ya?

Of course poetry should always be read aloud….

Some flowers are tall

Some flowers are small

Some flowers barely grow at all


That’s not the end.

It should be

Here’s a poem about a dog….… here’s another one about a dog…..

This one has no name on it…..

An English rose among thorns.

I can see why you might want to remain anonymous.

Dog poem…..poem about a tree;

This one’s called “Boys”

It’s called Haiku

It’s not what I would call it.

Dog poem…dog poem

Ah here’s someone just drawn a picture of a dog.

That’s not bad actually
