Book Spine Poetry for National Poetry Day

book spine poetry,writing,poetry

Here’s a sneaky piece of bookspine poetry, composed in WHSmith’s under the watchful eye of the security guard!

Apologies for the wonky picture, I took it under duress!

I saw a man

Every three hours

The year I met you.

A brief affair,

Only to die again.

    This sounded kind of sad. I know Peggy.
    Congratulations on being Danny Ray’s featured blogger. I was just featured blogger too. Maybe you can check out my blog if you need a blogging tip or two. That’s what I write about.
    I brought you the link to my about page, so you can more about my blog and. Also, my avatar takes you to the wrong site.
    Like Danny, I have many blog parties each month.

  4. I didnt find “I saw a man” anywhere so far and I want to read this one. Can you suggest me any website where I can get it?

    • I found this copy in WHSmiths. If you’re not UK based, I’m sure Amazon will stock it. Sometimes publishers change a book’s title when it’s published internationally though so if you can’t find it this may be the reason. The author’s own website is usually a good place to check. I hope you manage to find it.

    These are definitely fun. Would be great to go to a bookstore or library and just do tons of them. 🙂 My home library is mostly packed away at the moment so I am limited, though that does make it more challenging.
