The Sun By Amy Boothby - Age 10 Years - Poem by Ernestine Northover

The sun is a beach ball covered in sand,
Warming up this little land.
It's been kicked into the blue sky,
By a boy on the beach, that kicked it too high.
It races you home, wherever you may be,
Who will win, you'll have to wait and see.

    Great poem, Ernestine. Is Amy your granddaughter? Since this was posted over 11 years ago, she must be 21 by now. What is she doing? Probably married with a prodigy child of her own. (Report) Reply

    Okay Erestine are you setting up familial competition here? Because I genuenly like this. The flow, the image, everything.

    God how it hurts me to say this but perhaps we should listen to kids more.

    Give Amy my best and congratulate her on a marvellous piece and under no circumstances should she stop writing or I'll compose a nasty limerick about her (Ha!) .

    Warmest regards

    A Message to Amy:
    Over the sea the ball has travelled
    And on the shores of Egypt it has landed
    Raa was his name in ancient days
    And on the Nile's waters is where He stays.
