Poems in the park

Here's a poetry competition, with book tokens as prizes.

Don't think I'll enter, but only because my poems generally go something like this ...

There were trees in the park
they were covered in bark
but you couldn't tell
as it was totally dark

  1. In that case, I'd enter, Patsy. I loved the poem. Short and to the point!

  4. That's surely a winning entry, Patsy, only problem is entrants have to live within one mile of the park.

    I know someone who lives a stone throw away.

    1. There are different categories, Debbie. One is for really local people but the others are for anyone in the UK.

  5. Hehehe! That was hilarious! That's about how my poems go too. I sound like Dr. Seuss except, well, not as good!

    I love reading poetry, but totally stink at writing it. :-/

  8. If you entered that poem for the tree-themed comp you told us about last week, it would have won hands down!

    1. I certainly would have, Liz - assuming there were no other entries and the judge was drunk.

  9. I enjoyed your poem, Patsy. Similar to my style of poetry. We should invent a whole new genre.

    1. Christine is ahead of you, Suzy - but I'm sure she'll let you join the dodgy poets society.

  10. So the man in the hat
    Stepped into the wood
    Someone was there
    And he didn't look good

    That'll do won't it?
