Michael Rosen

I’m There

Whatever you can’t see
That’s me
Whatever you can’t hear
That’s me
Whatever you can’t touch
That’s me
Whatever you can’t taste
That’s me
Whatever you can’t smell
That’s me
Whatever you don’t know
That’s me
Whatever you can’t imagine
That’s me
Whatever you can’t think
That’s me

Now you know who I am

Michael Rosen, 2010, poem for Invisible Dust.

Michael Rosen was born in 1946 in North London. One of the best-known figures in the children’s book world, he is renowned for his work as a poet, performer, broadcaster and scriptwriter. He was children’s laureate 2007-9.  As an author and by selecting other writers’ works for anthologies he has been involved with over 140 books including the renown ‘We’re Going On A Bear Hunt’. He lectures and teaches in universities on children’s literature, reading and writing. Michael Rosen is a prolific broadcaster, presenting programmes and often making social commentary. He was one of the first poets to make visits to schools throughout the UK and has also visited schools throughout the world.

Michael Rosen originally went to medical school and his interest in science led to a book of poems about science and technology ‘Centrally Heated Knickers’ in 1999. We are planning a children’s poetry programme with Michael Rosen for the Invisible Breath project.
