Christmas Poem

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.
