Picture poems (ah yes, shape poems, concrete poetry!) are fun to do and it looks like you had fun with these. It was really hard choosing just a few to post. I was after a poem that looked good but that also offered something as you read it.
So I love the ones that sounded good or surprised me.
I am sending Ewen a notebook to write her poems in.
I am sending William a copy of my book the Letterbox Cat.
