National Poetry Day

Updated 11 October 2002

It's National Poetry Day, it's time to party,
So send us two lines, but don't be a smartie!
Send us two great lines that rhyme,

We'll update this page from time to time.

Everyone who posts here is a really bad poet,
But it is rather obvious (açık, belli, aşikar) that Newsround doesn't know it.
