To the landscape
Half the night she lay awake,
The howling ship of the wind,
National Poetry Day, founded by Forward Arts Foundation in 1994, is an annual celebration that inspires people throughout the UK to enjoy, discover and share poems. Everyone is invited to join in, whether by organising events, displays, competitions or by simply posting favourite lines of poetry on social media using #nationalpoetryday.
The theme of this years National Poetry Day is 'Change'. Below we have created a collection of poems around the theme of change. We hope you enjoy!
