Great Feedback On My “Selected Poems”

I was delighted to receive the following email earlier today:

“Dear Mr Morris,
I am writing to tell you that your poems in “The Collected Poems of K Morris” that you gave me on the train on my way to college are exceptional. You might not remember me but I am the girl doing politics and history that you met on the train and gifted your amazing book to. I have always been interested in writing poems and therefore you have really inspired me to carry on my interest and write some poems of my own. I would really like to thank you for gifting me your book and inspiring me to continue writing”.

A Most Beautiful Young Lady Named Polly

A most beautiful young lady named Polly
Said, “lets go and do something jolly!”
When we did rush
Into a thick bush
We screamed, “my god its prickly holly!”

The Young Lady and the Devil

On the night that’s known as Halloween
A young lady sat eating some cream.
When the devil, being a wit
Said, “please, give me a bit”.
And then she awoke from that dream!

Miss Heart’s Performing Art

I know a young lady named Heart
Who is an expert in performing art.
She performs on my lawn
With that pretty Miss Thorn
Which really is good for my heart!

There Was a Young Lady of Japan

There was a young lady of Japan
Who married an old man named Stan.
He thought her real hot
But not getting a lot
He left that young lady of Japan!

There Was a Young Lady of Portugal

There was a young lady of Portugal
Who had a reputation for being dull.
Her conversation was so boring
It had her lovers snoring,
And her talk it killed a bull!

Lou’s Poem

When a young lady whose name is Lou
Said, “I shall write a poem about you!”,
It was really rude
And so extremely lude,
That I hear you are going to sue!

I Know a Young Lady Named Mona

I know a young lady named Mona
Who is known for being a loner.
On her wedding day
She ran far away.
Please, has anyone seen my girl Mona!


When a young lady whose name is Mona
Asked that I please go and phone her,
I said, “my dear
You are already here!”.
So she left, so I could phone her!
