To celebrate National Poetry Day, our Poetry Ed, Abbie, has penned a couple of exclusive works, just for our readers!

Take a look below!

A Special Day

We love a poem here at the “Friend”,
In few words they say so much,
Happiness, humour and sadness too,
They inspire, move and touch.

But now I’ve tried it out for myself,
There’s one question on my mind—
How on earth do our poets do it
In just 12-16 lines?

So let’s celebrate their talent
And the joy they send our way—
Wander through our links below
It’s National Poetry Day!

Just look here to see what you’ll find.
