Folklore

Hey everyone. A few weeks ago I attended a writers workshop on folklore. This is one of two poems I wrote during the workshop which is simply entitled Folklore I hope you enjoy the read.

Folklore

Folklore
the traditions
the building blocks
of nations

stories and songs
tales of heroes
conquering beasts
symbols of unity

a sense of community
imagined or real
handed down
through generations

national myths
have pride of place
at school
where we learn
what some see
as our culture

@ Gayle Smith 2013
