Poems for April

Blue sky? For more than a day? Normality? HOORAY!

Busy Blackbird

Skids about the garden,
never stops to rest,
stuffing beak with shreds and bits –
never mind what’s best.
Flaps off over treetops,
dropping stalks and sticks…
back again – more hops, more bits:
blackbird building nest.

From Wildlife Poems [see Book (for kids) page].

The Trees Behind the Teachers’ Cars  

Spring Term      (from a set of 4 verses, one for each season)

Emerald tips are
twinkling in the light,
drinking down the light,
thinking of opening up and soaking up the light
this afternoon,
or sometime soon.
That’ll be a treat for Sir’s car.

Published (with the other 3 verses) in Read Me At School, Macmillan Children’s Books, 2009.
