Fire and Water

by Elsie aged 12

There was a boy who loved a girl,

that girl loved the boy,

they were never allowed to see each other,

speak to each other,

touch each other,

the consequence was bad,

the consequence was,

water (the girl) would make fire glum,

she would put out the flames of the boy’s heart,

they would be upset

and the love in their hearts wouldn’t restart,

glum they would be forever and on,

trying to restart the love in each other’s heart,

forever and on…

The Rose

by Harshita Das aged 12

To love you, is to love a rose
For I know, if I touch you
You will prick me
Forming scars
That won’t ever heal
So, I can admire you from afar
Admire your beauty
Never dare to go any nearer
But perhaps if I pluck your thorns
Then will you love me
As I love you?

Our Love Is…

by Elsie aged 12

Our love is the deepest ocean,
the deepest ocean that never ends,
the end would be golden,
the end would shine,
the end would be crystals,
the end would have creatures,
creatures within,
within the clear water,
the clear turquoise water,
no sign of murk anywhere,
the creatures would be glimmering little fish,
little fish that smile,
Our love is

Our Love

by Elsie aged 12

Our love is inseparable
Our love is deep
Our love is never ending
Our love is unique
Our love is like no other
Our love is connected
Our love is amazing

Romeo and Juliet

by Elsie aged 12

Romeo and Juliet
Loved each other very much
The hatred between their families
wasn’t enough to keep them apart
Their love was deep,
as deep as a pool,
a pool of darkness,
a never ending pool,
a pool with crystals,
crystals that shone,
a pool of wonder,
wonder why,
why their families fought’
Why did they have to be born,
born into those families
that hated each other?
Why oh why
did they have to be born,
born into these families
that hated, hated, hated
hated each other.

Romeo and Juliet

by Elsie aged 12

Juliet is waiting
for her oh so beloved Romeo,
Saying his name out loud,
Romeo Romeo,
wherefore art thou Romeo?
Their love for each other was like no other,
Their families fought
and then stopped
after the incident of their children’s death,
all because of their family’s hatred for each other.

Hate and Love

by Isabelle Kemp aged 10

People hate cats,
People love dogs,
People hate numbers,
People love letters,
People hate other people,
I love you,
You love me.

Lit Day

by Samira aged 10

It was a Friday,
a very lit day,
we sang till the birds could hear us,
we jumped and reached for the sky,
but then we realised school was up and that was it,
till the very next day,
when I met my crush.

A Type of Love No One Will Forget

by Samuel aged 11

Part Two

We danced on the Moon,
We played on Mars,
We slept on Jupiter,
We ate at Mercury,
We sang on Pluto,
We swam in Uranus,
We slept on Neptune,
But then the next morning it was time to go,
I got my Valentines,
then we packed the luggage,
And then we sealed the door.
We flew back to Earth in are little rocketship,
And then gave my parents a quick phone call,
I said we landed safely and we hope to see you soon.

This is LOVE

by Elsie aged 12

Love comes in any way
Open up, feel free to say
Very deeply love can go
Everyone is individual
