SockShop Anthology - in celebration of National Poetry Day
Posted 3rd October 2013 by Danielle
So it's National Poetry Day here in the UK and, in celebration of all things poetic, the SockShop Team has been getting creative and writing their very own sock poems!
Hope you enjoy!
Danielle - Blog writer
I decided to go first and ended up coming up with a rather poignant poem about a lonely sock. I call this one Ode to an odd sock.
'Where art thou? Where art thou?
He searched the house both high and low,
But he could not find his stripy friend,
Dave - Buyer
After I shared my poem around the office for inspiration, our buyer Dave replied with this creative reponse to my poem (some would call it plagiarism but I decided to look the other way). He titled it Ode to the other odd sock.
The other sock to your pair!’
Cried the other striped sock
'I can hear you, but where?!’
He searched the house both left and right,
To find his long lost twin.
He searched in the washing machine,
Even in the bin!
He wandered home to the drawer of socks,
With his head down in despair,
Only to see his twin looking back,
They were once again a pair.
Zoe - Customer services
Zoe is clearly a natural poet. She came up with not just one, but TWO cracking poems about the only place to buy your socks!
Poem 1 - I Love Socks
I love socks they keep me warm,
I buy from sock shop when they’re torn.
Thermals, plains, and funky ones too,
I’m sure you will find the style for you.
Socks and tights to warm your feet,
Place your order online with us,
Free returns offered what more can you need,
We hope to see you return once more,
Kim - Designer
Being one of our design team, Kim is certainly creative; even when it comes to words! Check out her sock-and-tightstastic poem!
I love a new pair of socks,
For when I’m out and about,
So there you have it. A small anthology of poems by the SockShop team. If you can't get enough of the socktastic poems, click here and check out some verses sent in by SockShop customers and friends!
