I pick a pen and write
A few running poems just right
To celebrate the day of the word
Written in verse, all over the world

Celebrate the poets,
In the present and the past,
To welcome the ones in the future
And share the wisdom that abound

They may be penned down, the poems
Or be shared by word of mouth
They may be free to roam like the birds
Or censored, locked in cages, never to leave

Celebrate with me,
Share the experience of the great artists
Who were, are and will be
Capturing human nature in verse
