Police in the English village wrote a poem: All we can do now to show we cared is to lay flowers at a grave for feelings we shared. Please admire not take our bouquets and our wreaths.

AUDIE CORNISH, HOST:

Good morning, I'm Audie Cornish. Police in a village in England are trying to catch a thief who is stealing flowers from graves. Extra surveillance didn't work, so naturally police officers wrote the thief a poem. All we can do now to show we cared is to lay flowers at a grave for feelings we shared. Please admire, not take our bouquets and our wreaths. Pray you're not a victim of this terrible grief. Hopefully, the thief is a poet who just doesn't yet know it. It's MORNING EDITION.
