A poem for you, a poem for me. Let’s all celebrate a day for poetry!
Ha! We’re a poet and didn’t know it. Or did we? Did you know that March 21 is known as World Poetry Day? Founded in 1999 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization, the holiday, according to un.org, “recognizes the unique ability of poetry to capture the creative spirit of the human mind.”
Similarly, window coverings allow one to get quite creative when designing the look of their home. With so many styles, patterns and colors to choose from, the only limit is one’s imagination.
So in the spirit of the holiday — and our business — we’ve come up with some poems that help tell the story of what we here at Select Blinds are all about.
Let’s start with some Haiku’s. For those who do not know, the Haiku is of Japanese origin and is a poem that contains 17 syllables, organized in a 5-7-5 pattern.
You visit our site
To find window coverings
You see them and smile
Do as the Romans
Lovely fabrics and colors
Roman Shades look great
Select Blinds is here
To help improve your windows
And make you happy
Let’s keep our kids safe
From the dangers of long cords
Choose a cordless look
The light blinds and my
Head hurts. Blackout shades are good
Whatever you need
To make your windows look good
Is at Select Blinds
An old-fashioned look
With great durability
Shutters are for you
Your window’s ugly
But it does not need to be
Select Blinds can help
The sun is shining
But you don’t want UV Rays
You want Solar Shades
Another type of poetry is the limerick. According to Wikipedia, the rhyming scheme is such where the first, second and fifth lines rhyme, while the third and fourth lines are shorter and share a different rhyme.
You want your windows to look good,
But to pay high prices, you’re not in the mood,
So head to Select Blinds,
To get out of your bind,
And show off your windows, you would.
An ugly window is no fun,
But you wonder, what can be done,
At Select Blinds we are here,
With window coverings you need not fear,
Because they’ll look good when blocking the sun.
Window coverings need not be boring,
They can actually be pretty fun,
Just go to Select Blinds,
And what you will find,
Is an inability to pick just one.
Are we poetic or what!
Fine, we won’t quit our day jobs. Of course, we’re just having some fun here, taking some poetic license to put a little spin of our own on this creative holiday.
There are plenty of other forms of poetry, and no doubt much better poems than what you just read. But all types of poetry boil down to self-expression and people feeling something upon reading or hearing it.
Same goes for the many types of window coverings. Whatever you choose, you’re expressing your own unique style and creating a look that makes you feel good. And there’s certainly a lot of poetic justice in that, isn’t there?
