For our 2015 Christmas assembly, our school poet laureate, Anum, composed this special poem:
Lights twinkle on bare branches
Where red leaves used to rustle
Once upon a time,
Before the snow began to fall
And all eyes began to sparkle
With Winter’s smile.
I hope you’re warm this Christmas,
Singing the same age old songs
We used to sing.
You’re only candle-light this year,
Tinsel memories, lonely tree,
Broken angel wings.
But the fairy lights still shine
And the smell of pine lingers.
I am warm this year,
Although my stocking isn’t full
And the star has fallen off the tree;
It is Christmas here.
