JULY POST FOR ISWG:

Welcome to July everone hope the month
will be just wonderful for you.
WHEN MY WRITING GOT PRAISED:
The first time my writing got praised,
Was some years ago.
It was by  Danny Boy no less.
How it did spur me on so.

I did some poetry postcards,
For Daniel's charity.
He said the poems were wonderful,
Likewise wonderful to see.

The story of these postcards
Was taken up by a weekly newspaper.
I had many orders to send out.
Thinking at the time what a caper?

The feedback from people who bought them
Was encouraging to say the least.
Saying "How inspirational they were"
This went on for weeks.

To cut a long story short.
I did six postcards in all.
Raised well over £6000
Doing them was really a ball.
