Although National Poetry Day began in Britain, it seems to have taken over the world. Well, the Twitter world at any rate. And who better that The Elephant to decant a few choice verses?

Who better, indeed?



“The monkeys, in the trees,

“Cause a breeze, when they sneeze.”


“I nudged the boulder with my shoulder.

“It was older, and much colder.”


“It is a thrill, to have free will,

“That is until, others say `nil’.”


“That’s not my last, don’t be so fast,

“My muse to cast, into the past.”


“It’s just a guess, I do confess,

“That more is less, in the wilderness.”
