This week the Poetry Bus is being driven by poetess Rachel Fox, on the theme of one's favorite word.
So many, many words! How to choose just one? May I take two or three please? They're very short. Even together they're not as big as "Wednesday", or "Bandersnatch"...
Pack the bags lightly
fill the pockets
water the plants and feed the cats
by foot or by rail
we shall go where we have not gone before
Furnished with snacks.
We will not always speak the language
but we will smile.
We will not always be on the map
which we forgot on the train anyway.
There's a place down the road we haven't been before
Other bus stops can be found here. Have a great adventure!
