Poem of the Day

Delighted to have ‘First Day’ published at the Australian Children’s Poetry Blog.

Australian Children’s Poetry Website

First Day

Are you ready for a big tomorrow

listening, leap frogging,

growing learning’s wings?

Are you ready for a big tomorrow

singing, seeking friends,  perhaps

learning not to cling?

Will you notice as

your tomorrows become todays

patterned by

the daily school bell rings?

Will you find each day might

have a surprise

like a snake catcher visiting with

super thin snake skin?

Are you ready for a big tomorrow

As your school journey begins?

June said: With ‘First Day’ I started with the idea of a ‘big tomorrow’, and thought about yesterday, today, tomorrow, routines and surprises.

I also remembered a time when my son had a snake catcher visit his school and so the poem was born.
