LET MAGIC HAPPEN

By Josie Whitehead

THINKING/SPEAKING POEMS FOR KS2

Children, listen carefully,

     There’s something you must do –

And it’s not just something you should do,

     But I should do this too.

 

Move from that pleasant comfort zone

     Into a brand new place:

Look round for something different

      Or notice that new face.

 

Don’t dig yourself into a rut

     And not try something new:

There could be talents you may have

     That are waiting to break through.

 

There could be people you have met

     Who’ve never seen your smile.

There could be clothes you’d never wear

      ‘Because they’re not my style!’

 

There could be sports you’ve never tried

     Or books you’ve never read,

‘But I don’t think I’d like that sport!’

      Is that the thing you’ve said?

 

Magic comes not from a wand

    But by the things you do.

Get out of that soft ‘comfort zone’

    And try out something new.

 

The opportunities will come:

    You’ll grab them if you’re smart.

And every day's a 'magic day'

     And a darned good day to start!
