A Happy Birthday Poem from Ewen

Today is Ewen’s birthday and this is what she did on her birthday. How wonderful! Happy Birthday to you and thank you for all the great poems you send to Poetry Box.

Hi Paula,

Since today is my birthday, I decided to write a birthday poem.

I hope you like reading it!


I frowned and sighed

as I stared into the distance

the world seemed so still

but I knew it wasn’t.


All of a sudden

out of the blue

I heard a song

that I knew.


My eyes lit up

like Christmas lights

and the happy excitement

lingered in the air.


It was my birthday

a feather

in the broad wing

of time.

Ewen W aged 11, Year 6, Fendalton Open Air School, Christchurch
