A poem about a poem

A Poem

I got it from the library
It’s mine for two weeks
Tucked in my school bag
But I keep taking peeks

A poem is an endless stream of wordies
Waiting in a book
It can be about lots of things like birdies
Or things you like to cook

People might be an author poet
Some people may not
You just need to show it

You can write one or alot.
