We have been writing some poems for the The Keepers Poetry Project there are too many for the main entry so....


I keep teddies.
I try to keep them in.
But my sister usually pulls them back out!

Megan M

I keep loads of secrets .
When my friends hear they fall out .
But we usually make up by the next day!

Megan M

I keep going to dancing.
My feet usually flop in.
Although they are supposed to be turned out!

Megan M

I keep the hairsprays.
I keep them in.
Then the spray jet runs out!


I keep fear.
I keep the joys out.
I let the unpleasantness seep in.


I keep my patience.
I keep my anger in.
But sometimes it runs out.


I keep the bag.
I keep the doll out.
Often goes skittering in!


I keep a bin.
I keep the rubbish in.
Everyday I empty it out.


I keep the horses.
I keep the horses in.
but sometimes I lead them out!

I keep a goldfish.
I keep the fish in.
Never should it jump out!


I keep the reflections,
I keep pretty and ugly in,
But I all was want to let them out.

Emma Barker

I keep a computer.
I keep the documents in.
Sometimes I open them out.


I keep an xbox.
I keep a game in.
Unless I want to swap them out.


I keep the peace.
I keep the bad men in.
Occasionally they barge out!


I keep water dragons.
I keep them in.
Sometimes they scuttle out!


I keep the fire,
I keep it sealed in,
Often it rushes out.


I keep a sticker.
I keep it in.
Never should it peel out!


I keep the dreams.
I keep the bad once in.
Often I let the the good once out!


I keep the keys.
I keep the prisoners in,
Almost none ever get out!!!!!!


I keep the space.
I keep the trespassers out,
They rarely sneak in!


I keep the rabbit.
I keep the fleas out.
Sometimes they crawl back in!


I keep football stickers.
I keep them in.
Then I take my doublers out!

I keep the books.
I keep poems in.
Some times they must be sold out!


I keep warm.
I keep the cold out.
I close all the windows!


I keep the glass case.
I keep my glasses in.
often they come breaking out!


I keep the box.
I keep skates in.
but often they go skating back out!


I keep the car.
I keep the dust out.
Hopefully it doesn't creep back in!


I keep the jail.
I keep the criminals in.
Commonly they sneak back out!


I keep a locket.
I keep a picture in.
If you want to see it I will bring it out!


I keep a house.
I keep the burgallars out.
Never have they came in!


I keep my life.
I keep my soul in.
In years it will come out!


I keep the good dreams.
I keep them in.
Usually they skip out.

What great poems! I really enjoyed the range here. I noticed that Aleisha’s water dragons was the one I kept going back to. Well done to all!

I agree with Greg – a great collection. The one that sticks for me though was Lucy’s patience running out – I love that idea – puts strong image in my mind.
Why don’t you paste a different one every couple of days into the main page with the same invite to click on the banner for more?
I wish I’d had a blog when first asked to write the collection Keepers comes from – I could have just posted the idea and waited for everyone to give me brilliant poems back.
Congrats to all the writers.
Phil (original Keeper).

Having read your poetry on The Listeners, I knew that your Keepers would be excellent and I was not disappointed. Many thanks for all your work.
