Year 5 - Flint by Christina Rossetti

An emerald is as green as grass,

A ruby red as blood;

A sapphire shines as blue as heaven;

A flint lies in the mud.


A diamond is a brilliant stone,

To catch the world's desire;

An opal holds a fiery spark;

But a flint holds fire.

 Year 6 - Trees by Sarah Coleridge

The Oak is called the king of trees,

The Aspen quivers in the breeze,

The Poplar grows up straight and tall,

The Peach tree spreads along the wall,

The Sycamore gives pleasant shade,

The Willow droops in watery glade,

The Fir tree useful in timber gives,

The Beech amid the forest lives.

Year 7 -13 - If Only by Jonathan Brown

If only I could imprison the span of life

And let people stay here for ever

And witness the shining glory of eternity.


If only I could trap the soldiers

And throw them into a black hole

So that people could live in peace

Without constant hiding.


If only I could set the trapped animals free

And put them into a peaceful place

So that they can live in harmony.


If only I could stop the hate

Between you and me.


If only I could stop the wars

And rid us of all pain.


If only I could cut a slit

In every prejudiced jibe

As saddening as the lone wolf's cry.


If only you could come with me

Together we could make history.
