Winter Visitor

HONOURABLE MENTION FROM WRITE ON ISSUE 53



BY MIA JOHNSON, YEAR 6, GOVERNORS BAY SCHOOL



Last night Winter visited us

she tripped and left her veil

all over the school

She covered the slides with her grey paint

She tore apart Summer like

a piece of paper

She flies under our doors

and makes the room cold until

the heater turns on

And slowly but surely

it melts her away



This poem is a part of the Honourable Mention series, for those pieces of writing submitted to Write On Issue 53 (Summer 2019/2020) that we couldn't quite fit into the magazine.


Every Friday our Write On tutor and writer, Melanie Dixon, guides young writers at Governors Bay School.
