I have never written a poem before. Cecily, unfortunately, has written thousands, and has been pestering me to let her post one. I refused. Instead I decided to write my own poem, which adheres to certain grammatical and style rules which Cecily’s does not.
The topic is, of course, river life. I have no knowledge of any other kind of life, so I am sticking to the wise old adage to write what you know. Unlike Cecily, who writes poems about countless impossible things, like flying to the moon! Or my secretary Zoe Urquhart who has a whole blog dedicated to ridiculous poems on ridiculous subjects!
So like some of my other posts, this poem shall be sensible, and realistic.
I am but a fish, but a fish will live and learn,
As long as there is a river, and a sun to burn.
Here am I, nestled in the sand of the river,
Waiting for whatever the day will deliver.
Let there be sun, rain, wind or worse,
I would not leave for the whole universe.

I am not one to boast, however for one such as myself who has never written a poem before, I would say I did better than anyone could have imagined! Especially some like Cecily, who burst into laughter at the thought of my writing poetry. I leave it to you all now to make your own judgments on this!
If anyone has suggestions as to what other topics or themes I could write about, leave a comment below! I always enjoy reading your wonderful comments!
Thank you for reading!
