It's national poetry day! This year the theme is dreams. Every year (for the last 10 years or so) I like to collect the National Poetry Day postcards. The postcards are scattered around my flat. The Scottish Poetry Library have e-postcards too. So cheer up your friends - send them a poem today! The teachers among you might like to look at the teaching materials which were developed by my very clever friend and partner in crime, Cathrin Howells. I particularly like Water Horse by Gillian Clarke which begins thus:
"Sometimes when I’m sleeping
The sea taps on my door."
and has the lines
"And tonight I’m the sea’s daughter
And I know where dreams are found"
Read it for yourself. And sweet dreams!
