Innocent Days

By Conor Francis, Year 7

my messy hair

my teddy bear

my preschool

my basketball

my chicken pox

my smelly socks

my dog bites

my brotherly fights

watching The Wiggles

tickles and giggles

high trees

honey bees

my daydreams

my icecreams

my tricycle

my baby pool

my yummy pies

my little lies.

This piece was written in response to a prompt during our Poets Make History Master Classes run at Rangiora Town Hall this week with poet/ tutor Gail Ingram. Thanks to Jason at Waimakariri Libraries and the Friends of the Rangiora Town Hall for their support in bringing these workshops to local young writers.
