Quote of the Day

We don’t want people to be frightened of poetry, we don’t want people to think it’s not for them, or that it’s for posh people or difficult — it isn’t!

Poems can be simple and they can be complex but as long as children are given it as an everyday part of their lives, like singing and dancing, rather than it being seen as something special, they will like it.

 - Roger McGough


  1. What a beautiful quote and so true. I was so scared of poetry for so long until I decided that I don't HAVE to be scared of poetry if that makes sense. Now I just enjoy the beauty of it :)

    1. Yes. It makes all the sense in the world, and I'm so glad you're able to enjoy poetry without all the stress and worry. I can't imagine my life without it.
