A Good Day
By James Bell

A good day to be on line
a good day for the sun to shine
and for a certain banality of rhyme
a good to day to show your sophistication
by telling people its NationalPoetry Day
while they look and say - away!
a good day to read poems in the park
on the High Street
in the dark
if its early morning
while walking the dog
or adding a log
to the new made fire
a good day
like all the others
though for you
just that little bit special.
