    I wrote this in the sleeve of a WH Auden for my favourite person in the world (my sister) who also writes. Check her out on our tumblr below if you like the poem as I won't post her stories here. She has saved my life numerous times. If you hate the poem feel free to say so.

    Some people want the sun to shine

    Others the grass to grow,

    But you just want to plant a line

    So it can slowly sew

    Meaning to this world of ours

    Where we toil day by day

    So we can sit and spend these hours

    Outside of the decay.

    In a world of written joy

    Created by your hand

    Spoken word becomes your toy

    It submits to your demand,

    They’re teased and moulded into theme

    They serve prosaic law,

    Sewn together they barely seem

    To have been apart before.

    Loose your words from the cage

    Allow them to spread and fly,

    So when they’re sank into the page

    The spoken word won’t die.

    I see you write poetry almost as well as you do prose :smile:

    and ps: Love Auden
