Guest Poem


I recently received an e-mail from a little girl called Emma who lives in Hampstead. She sent along a poem. I liked it so much, I asked her to be a guest poet on the blog.

Here’s her e-mail:

Dear Mr. Lucas Brice,

I am 7. In school, they say you are the greatest poet in all of Britain. I am very fond of poetry. When I grow up, I want to be a poet like you.

I wrote a poem about my puppy Max. Can you tell me if you like it? If you do, can I get it in a book?

Best regards,


My Puppy Max
by Emma Watkins

My puppy Max has four legs,
My puppy Max sits up and begs,
My puppy Max is very smart,
My puppy Max likes to fart.

My mum helps me feed him,
He is my friend.
I really need him,
I am going to teach him to do maths.
