  • Many many years ago our class had to memorise a poem of their own. I couldn't be bothered and as there were 45 kids in my class I thought I would be dead unlucky to be called upon to read mine. The day came for the poems to be read, I, sitting in the back row, had no worries and began drilling my ruler with compass point. There I was, half way through the ruler when my name was called out. I got such a shock, the compass point went through the ruler and through my hand. I was sent home. I think I would rather have learned a poem.

  • Silver by Walter de la Mare Slowly, silently, now the moon Walks the night in her silver shoon; This way, and that, she peers, and sees Silver fruit upon silver trees; One by one the casements catch Her beams beneath the silvery thatch; Couched in his kennel, like a log, With paws of silver sleeps the dog; From their shadowy cote the white breasts peep Of doves in silver feathered sleep A harvest mouse goes scampering by, With silver claws, and silver eye; And moveless fish in the water gleam, By silver reeds in a silver stream. Walter de la Mare
