Andrew Motion

An ode to the Poet Laureate.

Beside my bed lies Andrew Motion
Underneath the baby lotion.
I reach to him for consolation
Taking joy from his narration

When sleep eludes and dreams won't come
I turn to him when I am numb.
His soothing words are such a potion.
Beside my bed lies Andrew Motion.
