About a book from Venice

by Jem Croucher

Started last September
Eight months of poetry
My little book from Venice
has served me faithfully

But now alas I’m reaching
the last few pages here
A few more days of writing
before the end is near

That’s when this little book
I have carried every day
will join all of the others
in my study on display

And then I’ll have the pleasure
of starting up another
A book of poems filled
from the front to facing cover

As a poet who writes daily, I carry an ‘ideas book’ with me everywhere I go. I’ve done this for years now but still have every one. They each last between 6-8 months each. This one was purchased in August last year whilst visiting Venice, Italy. When finished later in April, it’ll join the others – now numbering just shy of 100. Each is a a treasure. Photo – Jempics

  1. FUNNY JEM, MY MIRANDA BOOK SERIES IS ABOUT A GLASGOW GIRL WHO GOES TO VENICE TO FIND HER UNKOWN FATHER, LIKE YOUR WORDS, CHINA

  2. I too have always carried a journal with me for poems, since early childhood. I like using all the pages on the right side. Then turn the book upside down and filling those pages on the right side again.
