Ghost Children

Dreambeast says:

We all know about ghosts, whether we believe in them or not.

But what about ghost memories that come to visit you when you least expect them? Spilt a page into 4 and draw a picture/ write a sentence about the ghost memories and people that come and visit you. What do they want? What do they say? Why do they haunt you and what lessons of life are they here to help you with?


Ghost Children

The class gone home, I mark my books

When the Ghost Children come out to play

“Do you remember us old Sir

from a time long before yesterday?

Our ancient crazes, ways and dreams

that are no longer up on display.

Forgotten hopes, where did they go?”

Then the ghost children fade away

ghost children
wearing mummys clothes
tina gorjalina
the full stop day
home time
harriet half
becky bond
always picked last
a bag called me
he fights
rolling in time
