Rainbow Reed (Crayford, Kent)
World In A Suitcase
The Amber lights smiled,
Blinked through the darkness
Sending coded messages of hope.
Grey aeroplane screamed,
A giant metallic albatross,
Soaring into secret skies.
World in a battered suitcase,
Can a terminal building,
Be her new beginning?
Excitement shines in dark eyes,
Hope flew with her across the seas
Following tall and resolute.
