We are the famous city of Liverpool,
Where the creed, the culture, the buildings are cool.
We sing about our stories, our joys and our pains.
Beatles' tunes echo down Matthew Street,
Liverpool's constantly tapping it's feet!
As Liverpool celebrates 800 years,
We think back to all the laughter and tears.
The highs and the lows that we in Liverpool know..
And some of the marks still here to show
Yet with out those we wouldn't have the Liverpool that we love and know.
Dorothy Clements young poet
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.
