Creative Writing by Gervase Phinn

This is a wonderful poem by Gervase Phinn. You can find out more about him and his books at

My story on Monday began:
  Mountainous seas crashed on the cliffs,
  And the desolate land grew wetter ...
The teacher wrote a little note: Remember the capital letter!

My poem on Tuesday began:
  Red tongues of fire,
  Licked higher and higher
  From smoking Etna's top ...
The teacher wrote a little note: Where is your full stop?

My story on Wednesday began:
  Through the lonely, pine-scented wood
  There twists a hidden path ...
The teacher wrote a little note: Start a paragraph!

My poem on Thursday began:
  The trembling child,
  Eyes dark and wild,
  Frozen midst the fighting ...
The teacher wrote a little note: Take care - untidy writing!

My story on Friday began:
  The boxer bruised and bloody lay,
  His eye half closed and swollen ...
The teacher wrote a little note: Use a semi-colon!

Next Monday my story will begin:
  Once upon a time...
