Dads can be poets too!

What a lovely email I received yesterday from Kurt Verkest, father of Yavanna from Grade 4 Renaissance College Hong Kong after I wrote to Yavanna thanking her for her excellent entry into my Dragon and Jade Story Competition! It was so clever that I just had to share it with you all! Here it is:-

I’d like to thank you from my heart

for making this contest be a part

of Yavanna’s growth as a fledgling author

the better to get her words into order

 She will tell you I’m sure by return of mail

if of your offer she wants to avail

She has my consent to replyy aye or nay

But am certain that yes is what she will say

 I’d like to add a father’s gratitude

for encouraging kids with your great attitude

we love your books and your website too

and when rellies have kids we know just what to do.

 We send them we do with great speedy speed

a handful of books from you for to read


Isn’t that a terrific poem! Thanks Kurt for proving that Dads can be poets too!
