A tale I read

Names by Wendy Cope

A tale I heard

Comedian James Acaster on the biggest shocks from his food podcast, Off Menu:

"Claudia Winkleman said she’s never knowingly drunk water, and Jordan Banjo did as well, he said it reminded him too much of spit. Both of those two were pretty big surprises."

A tale I saw

Hope by Jenny Foulds  

A tale I wrote

There will be fudge brownie M&M's,
midnight bowls of salted popcorn,
an orange Calippo and a mint Feast,

archery, rock-climbing, tap-dancing, 
hats and scarves that do not suit you,
the smell of a flower you grew yourself,

nicknames, rooms you belong in,
secret recipes, favourite park benches, 
someone who looks up to you with wide eyes,

but first you need to find your feet
and turn them into wings.
