Once upon a time
there was a diesel and a steamy
chuffing down the tracks:
the diesel was oiling
and the steamy was chuffing and puffing
but then he stopped and did his breaks
but the diesel didn’t
so he crashed!
Then the rescue car came
and rescued all the people!
A poem by Ollie, aged 4!
I am delighted to say that my youngest son Ollie has begun to take an interest in poetry, following in the footsteps of his mum and older brother, Benji.
He asked me to write this down for him the other night, and told me with confidence that he will read it at Poets’ Pub. So if you tune in for dVerse Open Link Night Live tonight, you may well get to hear him read…
Rest assured that I am not a pushy parent in any way. But it does make me smile when the kids pick up on what I do and react to it in such a positive and creative manner 🙂
