Two Poems for Fleetville Infant School

I am lucky enough to undertake regular work at Fleetville Infant School in St Albans. I have visited the school on quite a number of occasions now, and am met with a fantastic welcome from children and staff every time. This week I am working with their Nursery and Reception classes, who have been looking at 'love' and 'rainbows' respectively. I have written new poems especially for them, and am looking forward to sharing them during my visit!


I’ll Love You

I’ll love you if you’re big
I’ll love you if you’re small
I’ll love you if you’re short
I’ll love you if you’re tall
I’ll love you if you’re happy
I’ll love you if you’re sad
I’ll love you if you’re sensible
I’ll love you if you’re mad
I’ll love you if you’re quiet
I’ll love you if you’re loud
I’ll love you if you’re shy
I’ll love you if you’re proud
I’ll love you if you’re naughty
No matter what you do
I’ll love you every single day
I’ll love you ‘cos you’re you


At the End of the Rainbow

At the end of the rainbow
are TEN shining stars

At the end of the rainbow
are NINE chocolate bars

At the end of the rainbow
are EIGHT fluffy bunnies

At the end of the rainbow
are SEVEN pots of money

At the end of the rainbow
are SIX little cats

At the end of the rainbow
are FIVE acrobats

At the end of the rainbow
are FOUR diamond rings

At the end of the rainbow
are THREE pigs with wings

At the end of the rainbow
are TWO golden eggs

At the end of the rainbow

There’s a doughnut from Greggs

(I might change the ending for this one, as the anticlimactic comedy might be lost on four-year-olds...)
