|‘Flowers in Hartlepool’ by Jay Cool|
Do a project, the teacher said.
You can choose the title.
Spend some time, just with your friend,
reading books and writing.
We collected books, ’bout every flower,
copied, coloured, outlined them.
About each flower, I remember nothing –
no name, no colour, no hue.
But, if I could, from my window view,
see a garden full of flowers,
I’d be content in every way.
And live life to the full.
In flowery tribute to Ricardo Scribblero (the famous rhyming poet), by Jay Cool, September 2018.
