Comments about Melanie Thomas
I want to put it on a pedestal,
raise it like a banner, blazoned
in bright blue.
I want to run with it, fly with it,
play with its kite, race headlong through a field

aerosol its portrait to the tallest wall,
in tribute, a multi-coloured mural,
sing out its loudest song in the village hall,
scoop it up in buttercups, let it rise
like a new loaf.

scatter it like coloured confetti on those ...
