We will begin this challenge with a Happy Birthday to Christopher Smart!
Who is Christopher Smart you may ask? Well he was a famous English poet and journalist who was born on the 11th April in 1722. Poor old Christopher didn’t have a great life according to historical records as he spent a number of years in a mental asylum. However, he wrote one of his most famous poems during this period entitled “A Song to David“. Sadly for Christopher things did not improve once he was released as he occurred a huge amount of debt and was forced to live his final years in a debtors prison.
Now we dont want to over stimulate anyones creativity too much here like poor old Christopher, so we are only looking for a short poem.
