If you’d like to see your work in my Guest Writer Spot, please contact me here or by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. I accept stories, poems, articles – in fact, anything and everything. All you have to do is make sure your prose is no longer than 2000 words and your poems no more than 40 lines.
This week’s guest writer loves penning rhyming poems. It’s my pleasure to introduce Carmen Garrott, with her poem on music. This is what she has to say about herself:
‘I’m a stay-at-home-mum of four children, who has just started to write poetry. I’m thinking about taking a writing course and working on some short stories. I’m a little nervous as this is the piece of work I’ve sent out! I hope you all like it!’
I’d love to be able to sing,
To produce notes of a wondrous ring,
Instead I make a terrible din,
Alas, I am no singer.
I’d love to play the piano,
To tickle those keys with great gusto,
Instead the piano sighs with woe,
Alas, I am no pianist.
I’d love to play the trombone,
To be applauded as I play alone,
Instead the audience groans,
Alas, I am no trombonist.
I’d love to conduct with a baton,
To stand there with tail-coat on,
Instead, I get the tempo all wrong,
Alas, I am no conductor.
