National Poetry Day '13
It's National Poetry Day! And while I'm tempted to give you an entire blog post in verse, I don't think I could quite pull it off. I do however, have some poetry delights to share with you!
When I was little I read LOADS of poetry books. My favourites being Roald Dahl's Revolting Rhymes (Snow White, in particular) and The Spot On My Bum. Because, hey, kids books do love a good laugh at the teenage years to come! I also had a selection of older poetry books passed down to me, including one that I seem to remember above all of the rest: 5's, 6's and 7's.
It is Snow White, though, that I want to share with you today. I loved it so much I learnt it all by heart, and could still recite you most of it today(!) On a trip down a Youtube black hole one day, I found an animated/illustrated version of the poem. So, in the spirit of National Poetry Day, sit back and enjoy a wonderful rhyme - albeit terribly British - and maybe show it to your kids/brothers/sisters/nieces/nephews etc etc... :) Enjoy!
