Lilia Stone ( KS3 Poet Laureate)
Slowly , gracefully, smoothly
The crystal white snow prepares itself
As the children come out
To throw snowballs around
The snow falls from the sky
As the wind tears it down
The sun covered in clouds
Makes the sky a dull grey
The comfort of warmth completely gone
Cold takes over
The sprucing holly from the branches
Stands bright and beautiful
The chirping robins fly around
As winter has flown in.
Lois Knight (KS4 Poet Laureate)
Leaves pass from sight
Frost appears just overnight,
And festive wreath's hang on every door.
It's the Christmas season!
Songs are sung
Baubles are placed one by one,
And cards come through the letterbox.
New Years Eve,
A day for family
A time to give thought to the past year,
Since the new one is so near.
KS5 Poet Laureate
To another year we wave goodbye
Such Brutish darkness under wild tides
No raft did hold our waves
Yet under these fragile seas
You stride in Ambition
To see the wealth of your Potential
In Golden coral
The tides fall to you not as your mistakes
In warm silk but
To lay witness to your shoals of luxury
Breathe full and know your
Efforts will reach silver coasts.
You are not over yet.
Feel fit in the fleet of such broken
This storm shall rain your thunder.
