Going Back

I’ve got my pencil

I’ve got my pen I’m back at school

I’m me again

I draw new pictures

I write new words

I’m back at school

I’m seen, I’m heard

I’ve got no pencil

I’ve got no pen

I’m back at home

I’m scared again

I draw no pictures

I write no words

I’m back at home

Unseen, unheard

Mark Bird

A girl with her head on the desk
A thoughtful, sad child
