National Poetry Day- 7 October 2021

Thursday 7 October 2021 is National Poetry Day!


This year, the theme of National poetry day is Choice.


What do you think choice means?

Choice means to chose between two or more possibilities.


Here is an example of a poem about Choice-

Trolley Man by Julian Stannard

When someone asks, Could I have
a sandwich with some cheese in it?
I will say No sandwiches today!

And if anyone should ask for coffee
I will say, Hot water not working.
Shocking, isn’t it?

I will wheel my trolley from one end
of the train to the other, smiling
magnificently at everyone.

And when a lady asks,
I don’t suppose you’ve got
a piece of shortbread
some lovely, lovely shortbread?

I will say, No my dear
all the lovely shortbread has gone.

Why don't you have a go at writing your own poem about the choices you make everyday and share it with us at and we can share this on the website!
