Last night my eldest child, Helen, starting making her own poetry book. She’s always been inspired by books and from time to time I find bits of A4 paper, folded in half with stories written in them and pictures drawn on the pages. Yesterday, however, she was inspired to write a poem.
Helen has been studying poetry as part of her literacy classes. She’s also been quite taken by a long-forgotten book of verse I found languishing at home the other day.
Helen showed me her book of poetry. There was a two-line poem written in it about love. I know she and her classmates have been taught about Valentine’s day so I think this was part of the inspiration, as was a song she has been singing at school.
Mrs Adams and I had a read of the poem and we were very impressed by its simplicity. I asked Helen if I could reproduce the poem here. She said I could, so here it is;
Love, a poem by Helen Adams
Love is like a circle never ending
Love is like a rose.
I hope this has been enough to brighten up your day!
