Exciting times! The Secret Poetry Project is underway and we’ve had some wonderful submissions.
Jack is keen for me to share his entry. He told me this poem while we were out wandering in the forest; our secret place. Luckily I had my notebook on hand!
Jack is 4 so he speaks his poems. His poetry is always spontaneous and is a part of his play.
If you have a young child I encourage you to ‘catch’ their poems and send them in! They don’t have to be on the theme of secrets. After all poetry is about playfulness, spontaneity and imagination; 3 things young children have in abundance!
