My Favourite Poem

Written by: Charles Clive

I have this piece of special verse; it’s pure, profound and yet serene. It scans and rhymes, a little terse, but with a meaning clear and lean. I love this piece of special verse; I feel it here, close to my heart. I nurture it, I am its nurse; as guardian, I play my part. I say this piece of special verse, from very start and go right through and should I then forget, I curse and curse again. That’s what I do. You want to hear this special verse, or wonder where it can be read? I fear the news is bad, or worse. I keep it here – inside my head! ~
