Why am doing this? a little quite corner of my blog where if you like poems and that feeling of calmness and happiness that comes with finding a bit of poetry that means something to you? Then I hope you will understand why I have decided to do this. My idea sprung from the book of poems that you can see in the featured picture A Poem for Every Autumn Day edited by Allie Esiri. It came to me that, this collection of poems is set out in a day to day format and would work well to 1. sing the books praises and 2. To make my blog a bit more warmer. So lets start off with the first one (apologies if it starts at the beginning of September I only recently got my copy)


๐ŸฆŠ ๐Ÿ‚ ๐ŸŽƒ ๐Ÿ‘ป ๐Ÿ•ธ

A girl with a book.

A girl with a book.

That’s what has scared them –

A girl, with a book

They get on to the bus.

They call out my name.

They aim. And they fire.

A shot to the brain.

Because a girl with a book,

A girl with a voice,

A girl with a brain,

A girl with a choice,

A girl with a plan

To have rights, like a man

That’s what they’re scared of

One girl, with a book.

A girl who has words.

A girl with a pen.

A girl to be heard

With support of her friends

Who want to live free –

That’s what they fear,

A girl just like me.

Malala – Michaela Morgan

I just love ๐ŸฆŠ s!!!!
