A Poem for World Poetry Day

Poems capture creative spirits of those like you

Diverse and expressive, poetry is powerful too

It can be moving, humorous and downright pretty (or gritty)

Poet laureates use poems to reflect the life of our cities

On March 21st we celebrate words

From sonnets and limericks, stringing together nouns and verbs

So on World Poetry Day, let’s cheer and reflect

On the role of poetry in encouraging tolerance and respect
