inspirational poems for kids

stay gold - stevie wonder


Dreambeast says:

What five things you would pack into your case to take to the future? Why?

A Bag Called Me


Be a kid

Enjoy the ride

Pause a while

Step outside


Frozen now

For shortest time

Look around

Upwards climb


Scan the view

and hold it still

Come back soon

You never will


So what you can

Pack in your case

And take it to

A future place


When you’re there

Way down the line

Open it

Let it shine


Reminding you

from green to gold

What you held

You still hold


Awe, belief

Hope and fear

Carried all

From then to here


What you were

Is what you be

Past and present

In a bag called,‘Me.’

wearing mummys clothes

the full stop day
home time
harriet half
becky bond
always picked last
a bag called me
he fights
rolling in time
