Mr Leacy, our caretaker, has written this amazing poem to inspire our children to write!
You learnt to write, you learnt to read
If one’s the soil, the other’s the seed.
With both now planted deep in your head
With the TV turned off, you can dream instead.
Now go to the land where dragons dwell
Where witches cast an evil spell
Where tears fall like summer rain
On all the joys and all the pain
Where moulding words is the rule of the day
So set your mind and let it play
Wander through memories old
And rhyme them up to be retold
Write a line about a cat
It doesn’t have to sit on the mat
In the world where you are king
Your tabby cat can dance and sing
Or write a poem about your mom
Or be adventurous and write a song
I’m sure she does deserve the praise
She cared for you all those days
So now you know you’re not on your own
Grab pen and paper and write a poem!
By Mr. P Leacy
