Britain's National Poetry Day

It's Britain's National Poetry Day Hip! Hip! Hooray! 

Stay? Which nation is this to serve any dish

we are at least four if not one or two more, 

but in these wetlands of these isles I see a draught

of what to write, to rhyme, to scan and everything else a poem must stand. 

What one can say is that this muse is not asleep or dead as we are all poets 

even if we slumber to feel, to think, to say something interesting apart from writing 

about this beautiful Indian summer's day after tombstone skies or can't be bothered 

to get of out bed drizzle far too lukewarm to be real rain that used to reign in 

England and now is being over thrown by a royal republic of dry summer days that 

cheer us all up until we unnecessarily bin British Summer Time for Greenwich Mean 

Time so mean for most Britons just to please some north Britons, many but not all 

decry to be so darker dangerous evenings so it be, but against our will - hey! the 

Michaelmas Daises our in beautiful, delicate bloom as leaves dance to carpet 

pavements, parks, fields and gardens galore to thank God or Nature for the Fall.

    Thanks 'Silent One'. It is going to be a beautiful evening. Now all flora is still, the sky airforce blue and the clouds do not scud at all.
