The Countdown


Time, Clock, Wall Clock

Tick tock

I’m watching the clock

Tick tock

They’re going to get a shock

Tick tock

Seeing me run round the block

Tick tock

This time I’m aiming to knock

At least half a second off my record for the quickest dash from my desk to the canteen

Tick tock

I’ve been waiting all day

Tick tock

We’re only minutes away

Tick tock

Then we can ditch the grey

Tick tock

What will the teachers say?

Tick tock

When we stampede out of school with a great cheer for summer vacation is finally here

I Think I Am Falling In Love

Now I have not asked her permission, so I am not going to do the whole re-blog thing. I just wanted to mention that I am falling in love with the poetry I read from a blogger I recently started to follow. This is was the poem I read in my WP Reader this morning:




All I see is River

Crashing on it’s crazy course

Ever onwards, on forever

With such fervour, with such force


                        But there is sun…there is moon

                Verdant meadow, windswept dune

            Shimmering dusk, starlit sky

                    Scented forests, mountain high

                Ravaged hilltops, rugged moor

                                Rainbowed flowers, trees galore

                        Dazzling deserts, sweetest breeze

                    Frosted lakes, majestic screes

        Hear the music, nature sings

                Sunsets tremble, daybreak rings

                    Hum of life, whisper of shore

                            Lullaby ocean, mighty roar


But all I hear…is River

Crashing in its crazy course

Ever onwards, on forever

With such fury, with such force

So, to God I raise my prayer

Help me notice they are there

Before my spirit starts to wither

Slow down the course of this crazed River
