National Poetry Day

On Freedom – Poem for National Poetry Day

Group Writing from Primary and Middle

When I think
When I’m with the people I love
When I sit with the animals
When I hear a Robin sing and
When I sing
          out loud in my car,

When I play games with Mum
When I play the piano
When I wear glitter
When I’m naughty or
When I play
           at being somebody else

When I colour
When I travel
When I read my books
When I feel at one with the earth like
When I walk
            Across the forest floor

When I feel soft
When I put new shoes on my feet
When I dance to the music and
When I say out loud 
            what I know is right

Then I know that I am Free
