Moss's poem will aid cancer sufferers05/10/2003 - 13:05:55
Kate Moss has proved she is not just a pretty face by turning her hand to poetry.
The supermodel has written a poem to raise money for the British Teenage Cancer Trust.
And she chose the world of fashion as the subject for her five-line limerick.
It reads: “Please let me tell you in brief/What has always been my belief/Though you may have a passion/for beauty and fashion/What matters is what’s underneath.”
Moss is one of dozens of celebrities who have written poems for the charity’s Write To Life campaign.
It will be auctioned off in a sale at Bonhams in central London this Wednesday.
Paul McCartney, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? host Chris Tarrant and actress Rachel Weisz are among those who have contributed.
Tarrant has written a four-line poem dedicated to fishing, his favourite pastime, while McCartney's ditty is about lollipops.
Oscar-winning actor Daniel Day-Lewis sent a more cerebral offering – perhaps inspired by his father, the late poet laureate Cecil Day-Lewis.
The auction will also see a selection of books, scripts, drawings and fashion photographs go under the hammer.
They include sketches by designer Alexander McQueen, a first edition of Charles Dickens’ Little Dorrit and an EastEnders script signed by the cast.
