Poetry 365 Challenge: A Poem A Day - 2015

I started this on Inkvite, then Wattpad, now I'm trying out Movellas!

There is no real prize as such, just the adventure of expression, and bettering ourselves as writers.

I'm no poetry expert but used to enjoy writing poems in school. So thought this could be fun and a good way of improving writing skills.

There are no major rules, you can write in any style of poetry you like, as long and short as you like.

I will set set various topics or themes, but again, you can follow your own path if they don't appeal to you.

For example, I think the first poem we write should be on the theme of "New Year's Resolutions" posted on 1st Jan 2015.

I will post the current theme at the top of this page regularly.

Hope you guys like this idea please leave comments letting me know if you support it.

Please share on social media and with your followers if you feel so inclined.

I'm going to use the tag 365 in this so we can find each other's work.

Note: my poems are only semi-biographical!

33. 2nd Feb: A Town Called Lovely

Date: Monday 2nd February 2015

Style: Rhyming Couplets/Free Verse

Title: A Town Called Lovely

Car broke down

Picturesque 1950's town

Sun shone on

Sun shone so long

In a town

A town called Lovely

The birds they sung succinctly

The gardens hung so neatly

The town hall cryer sang

The reunited lovers pang

In a town

A town called Lovely

We didn't have much money

We lived on milk and honey

The landlady of the Inn

Gave us board and gin

In a town

A town called Lovely

No-one had a phone

Couldn't call back home

Mechanic was away

Tailor so they say

In a town

A town called Lovely

But we didn't want to leave

We learnt to farm and weave

Our worries up and went

It was easy paying rent

In a town

A town called Lovely

The car has rusted over

Growing four leaf clover

Even winter is a delight

With snowballs we laugh and fight

In a town

A town called Lovely
