’The North Pole in Winter’ by Sandra
The North Pole in Winter is cold
And the Snowman is covered in snow.
Some people like skiing in it.
And the children like to play in snow.
At the North Pole there are snow dogs And they are pulling sledges.
Out of the snow, they make igloos.
At the North Pole there are polar bears.
Sandra, a resident with our Berith and Camphill Partnership community, wrote this poem about the North Pole ‘because I like the place. I like reading and writing with my friend Keith. We do poems, and we do stories. I like poetry. It’s very good to learn.’
’The Earth in Winter’ by Steven
There comes a very cold spell
The light is changing before day.
The sun is coming over the hills
And the mist is rising up and away.
The people are rising from their beds
Because of the start of the new day.
And the Earth is cold
With hard frost.
Steven, who is another member of the writing group, says ‘when I thought about the many years I’ve been a gardener, I wanted to write about what it’s like in the countryside. Would you believe, I’ve been a gardener since I was fourteen? Now I’m in my 50s and I’m not quite rusty yet. I keep my skills brushed up.’
