Daily Poem

Liverpool Oh Liverpool

Liverpool oh Liverpool
So special and so rare
Filled with culture and humour and people who care
People who can take the knocks always rise after they fall
With a spirit as strong as the River Mersey Wall

Liverpool oh Liverpool so honest and so true
A city of two colours
One Red and one Blue
Many buildings of grace so majestic and tall
With two Liver Birds watching over them all

Liverpool oh Liverpool
We shall never part
I can feel you inside me beating with my heart
But should I ever wander - should I ever roam
With you inside me
Ill Never Walk Alone

Roy Davis

Future Plans

To we tried to get poem800 published in book form but with 800 poems we couldn't find a publisher, also it was too expensive for us to print ourselves via vanity press so we regret that we have been unable to get it published. But we decided to leave it published on the internet i.e. running with a random poem every day (at our expense) and if anyone has any ideas on how to publish please get in touch.
