Today, NaPoWriMo is coming to an end once more after 30 days of writing (some good, some bad) and hopefully also a lot of reading and appreciation of poetry (both new and old.) To mark the end to the month, I hope all of you will share some of your favourite poems with me, whether these are poems you have written yourself, or that somebody else has written… or maybe both!
Here is a poem that I love by Roger McGough:

Wilted and broken on the corner of Sycamore street
I lie withering away to nothing –

travel miles and miles upon the wind,
but in the end I am far too frayed
to be patched up again.

Down below the river blue
she gently floats away
thinking all the thoughts of you
but too afraid to stay.
