To Catch A Poem

© more by Santhini Govindan

Published by Family Friend Poems March 23, 2022 with permission of the Author.

I want to catch a poem,
But I’m not sure how.
I wish I knew when and where,
I could catch a poem right now.

Can I catch a poem in the sand on a beach?
Or hiding in fields of long, green grass?
Can I catch a poem among the waves in the sea?
I’m not sure where I can catch a poem, alas!

Will I be able to catch a poem with a loop of rope?
Can I use the rope to lasso, and bind the poem up tight?
Will I be able to catch a poem with a butterfly net?
Will the net stop the poem from slipping out of sight?

Can I catch a poem when I’m playing outdoors?
Or can I catch a poem from right under my bed?
Oh gosh! As I thought about where I could catch a poem;
I actually caught one – it was right inside my head!!

“To Catch a Poem” was first published in March 2022 by Ukiyoto Publishing in the book titled To Catch a Poem by Santhini Govindan. The book can be bought on Amazon or from the Ukiyoto bookstore.
