Ode to a new notebook!

Posted on

I have just bought a new notebook for writing songs etc., it’s just a cheap WH Smiths reporters notepad but it’s always exciting getting a new book, who knows what will be in it by the time I’ve filled it!

Anyway it seemed appropriate to use the first page to write a short poem to introduce the new book.  I watched a very interesting programme on William Wordsworth the other night so I thought I’d try my hand at writing a sonnet, enjoy!!

‘Ode to a new notebook’

“A new start, full of promise unfulfilled
Blank pages wait for thoughts as yet unheard
An empty canvas waiting to be filled
With memories, poems, songs and empty words
Great works of art will sit with nonsense here
But on these pages all will find a home
Words of faith and hope, of joy and fear
Some to share and some for me alone
A snapshot of a period of time
Will one day lie within this humble book
And when this space is filled with verse and rhyme
We will return to take a closer look
But now we wait in keen anticipation
And listen in to hear the next creation”
