Poetry is a mug of soup

On a cold winter day

The gentle voice saying

Everything's okay.

 

It's removing new shoes

That hurt your toes

Poetry understands

It just knows.

 

It's the light in the tunnel

That might be a train

Poetry reminds you

Others feel the same.

 

Poetry is a big win

On a day at the races

Like Northern Rail

It's going places.

 

It's sun breaking through

Stormy skies above

Poetry is a kiss

From your first love.

 

It's your favourite song

But it never ends

Poetry is a phone call

From an old friend.

 

There are those that say

They don't understand

Poetry guides the way

Leads you by hand.

 

It's a weekend break

In a five star hotel

Poetry knows your secrets

But will never tell.
