POETRY

Tony’s poem School Yard In The Snow is published in READ ME AT SCHOOL,
a new anthology from Macmillan Children’s Books.
“I am delighted to be included in this excellent anthology,” says Tony.
'This poem is about the first time I saw snow, as a young boy, in Cricklewood, London N.W.2.'

School Yard In The Snow

Silent,
in this often noisy place,
I stand and stare
in wonder.

At snow, the first
I’ve ever seen.

A crisp white duvet,
pulled across our school yard,
while the world was sleeping.

Concrete lost in diamonds,
sudden magic fallen,
from a frozen winter sky.

I feel happy, so I sing :
‘ In the bleak mid School Yard ! ’
( But it’s not bleak really, it’s brilliant! )

White waves lapping red brick walls.
Icicles dancing on the cross-wire fence.

Everything’s different today.
Fresh and new and amazing.
Snow.. I love it !

I walk in gentle circles.
Softly.. slowly..

Crunch !

I like
the way it sounds,
the way it feels.

I’m an explorer,
the first to see
this silent place,
this special place,
our school yard
in the snow.
