National Poetry Day!

“Today”

I walked to Buckingham Palace,
To drink tea with the Queen.
Then I went up Jack’s Beanstalk,
To collect a magic bean.

I joined the King and Sorcerer,
To slay a fiery beast.
Then used a fairy’s magic,
To join the Lost Boy’s feast.

I travelled back in time,
To see the apple fall.
Then I went forward again,
To make the first phone call.

I composed symphony No. 25,
At Mozart’s side.
I was in the wide open field,
When Van Gogh died.

I ran a 5K marathon,
And swam across the sea.
I travelled to the moon and back,
And witnessed Kennedy’s Decree.

Today I wrote a poem,
And it’s all lies, you say?
Not once did I claim it true,
So no lies did I portray.
– J. Carson

So I didn’t know it was National Poetry Day until I came on here at about 11:50 and saw a bunch of people posting about it. it’s now 12:01, but I figured I’d celebrate anyway with a poem I wrote a few years ago. I don’t remember exactly why I wrote this, but I remember something my English Lit. Professor said inspired it.

Happy National Poetry Day!
