More gifts

Tuesday, 7 July 2009 15:37:17
Back from my wanderings, I found lots of poems had been sent to me from Tudor Hall School where I'd run a workshop for Y7s.  here are some of my favourite gifts:

A book full of nothing but happy endings.
A boat that will sail you over the horizon.
A dog that you can trust with all your secrets.
A chair that you can sink into and think.

I will give you some flowers forever in bloom,
A bunch of balloons to lift up your spirit,
I will give you an elephant so you will never forget.

More to come!
