Poem of the Day

1 Comment


I found a box

I saw ‘inside’

though what’s inside

I could not see.

Without a doubt

it’s inside out –

outside ‘inside’

just stares at me.

Perhaps ‘inside’

should be inside,

and ‘outside’ shown


But no,  ‘inside’

was outside wrote –

What’s ‘writ’ inside

perplexes me.

One thought on “Poem of the Day

  1. Hello Teena. I wonder if any teachers have written to you about how useful your site is? I’m chairing a panel on children’s poetry in Brissy next month – oh yes, I think it might be on your website, if not it should be. A gala array of Sally Murphy, JD Poulter, June Perkins, and me chairing it. But I’m going to give your site a plug, suggesting people use it in class, and I just wondered if you had heard from anyone using it? Sorry I haven ‘t sent a submission for a while – been very busy.
