The 21st March internationally celebrates poetry with ‘World Poetry Day’.

World Poetry Day’s aim is to get people to take more notice of poetry whether that is by reading a classic poem or helping new poets get their work published. Ultimately, today is all about celebrating the wonderful work of great poets.

Personally I think that poetry is a fantastic form of literature, which can bring an enormous amount of joy.  All ages can get so much out of a great poem, whether it is a child exploring their first poem or, an elderly person recalling their past times in prose.

I’ve decided to share my favourite poems with you today and throughout the week to celebrate.  As a former English teacher and a lover of poetry I have many favourites to choose from, all of which I hope you enjoy as much as I do.
