We have been sent a wonderful collection of poems by six-year-old Alexandra Prideaux. Here are two of our favourites:

Under the Sea

Under the sea,
the great blue sea
whales and dolphins sleep.
Lobsters and starfish,
crabs and fish too
Scuttle, swim, dart, and creep.

Under the sea
where seaweed sways,
submarine rumbles by.
Fallen and broken
on sandy seabed
cracked, twisted, shipwreck lies.

Springing Squirrel

Springing squirrel,
run and leap,
playing a game of
hide and seek.
Camouflaged in
gold-brown leaves,
finding, cracking,
nuts with ease.

Thank you for sending us your poems, Alexandra. Please keep writing them and enjoying poetry.
