and lastly … a tree fit for a Queen

I was blown away to get a drawing by Monica to go with her poem but I can’t seem to post it as it is a PDF (Monica was one of the Holiday Poem Camp fans). Her poems were just terrific. Posting this tree poem  is the perfect way to pack up camp and head home. I really enjoyed this Monica and I am in love with your drawing. Very mysterious and beautiful.

Thanks everyone who joined in writing and reading!

Hi Paula

Here is my tree poem, and a picture I drew for you. Hope you like it.




In the treetops


climbing upwards

my castle above

waves in the wind

to a beautiful dove


into my turret

I pull up the flag

my hut is amazing

I don’t mean to brag


smooth swaying branches

are easily seen

it’s the only place

where I can be queen


I love my palace

and it sure isn’t hard

to say my tree’s awesome

here in my backyard



Monica, age 11yrs, year 6, Russley School Christchurch
