Below is the poem of the day entitled Pick a topic -Hope which was written by poet Seren Roberts.

Pick a topic -Hope

Hope for sunshine on a snowy day,
Hope extra money is added to your pay.

Hope to awake and find you there,
Hope it was a dream and you still care.

Hope the world could be at peace,
Hope gun battles would cease.

Hope the countries leader would get it right,
Hope no more refugees take flight in fright

Hope when I am old someone will care
Hope someone will say, let's fix your hair

Hope each and everyday
Hope God listens when I pray

Hope he answers one or two
Hope he does the same for you
