Friday Poetry

Happy Friday my wonderful Book Dragons!

I hope you all have an amazing weekend planned.

My chosen poem this week is by Tony Mitton. Mitton is a children’s author and poet.

 

Days

Old day, gold day,

where did you go?

 

Over the skyline,

sinking low.

Into the arms

of the waiting night

to nestle myself

in its dark delight.

 

New day, blue day,

what will you bring?

 

Light in the sky

and a song to sing.

Sun bobs brightly

up with the dawn,

spreading warmth

as the day is born.

 

Tony Mitton

 

Have a good day everyone.

Happy reading.

  1. Oh I love the rhythm of this poem. Catchy. And so meaningful. I love reading and writing various pieces of poetry 🙂 This was so simple yet so deep.

    1. I agree, it brightened up my morning. I’m sadly no good at writing poetry and never really enjoyed reading it until recently. Now I’m learning to enjoy and understand poetry and beginning to fully appreciate it.
