Poem of the Day


A Button


One day I found a button.

It was lying on the ground.

It was thin and made of metal

and in this case, very round.

It was also very dirty

and rusty here and there

and I wondered if the owner had

another button spare.

And I wondered if the button

was simply scuffed or old –

from a swaggie or a soldier

or a pirate bearing gold.

Or maybe from a teddy bear

with stripy pants and cap.

But then, I wondered

where it was that button left a gap.

And so I’ll keep on wondering

about that button round

and how I’d like to keep it safe

now that it’s been found.
