"Going Back." A school poem for kids about the reality of going back to school for a few children.

For a few children, school is home and home is school. This poem for kids about going back to school explores those two contrasting realities.



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
