Let me enjoy the bliss of that

Childhood - The 21st Century
How advanced they are, these children of the future,
Like small adults, within their tiny frames,
They grow up in a fast 'speed driven' culture,
Where 'learning pressures' change their kind of games,

A Gentle Voice
Speak not, to me, of mundane things,
The daily chores, which dull the mind,
But converse with a gentle voice that sings,
As if all the golden thoughts you find,

Kiss Me
Kiss me and make it seem better,
Kiss me and quiet my heart,
I never once asked for a letter,
Stating you wanted to part.

Anne, Amy is all grown up now with children of her own and I don't think she writes poetry at the moment but she may go back to it as she gets older. I know she enjoyed composing the ones I put on my Poemhunter site for her. She was so proud of them. I'm so pleased that your pupils enjoyed them.. A very Happy New Year and may poetry find a place in your pupils hearts. Thank you for comments I will pass them onto her when I next meet her.. Regards Ernestine Northover..

Hi Ernestine. I would love to use your poem as a stimulus for an art project if this is OK with you. You have captured the image of the river very well indeed. Garret.

Love your poetry. Would it be possible to use a phrase to title my paintings?

Part of our German -English lesson book-, thought I found enjambements because often the last word before the comma is alone in one line. But here at the page it's much more structured. So I'll lose the discussion :))

I read to the children in my local primary school. There are nine, aged from just under 5 to 11 years. Our project this term is 'Lost Words' from the beautiful book by Robert MacFarlane and Jackie Morris. This week we wrote poems about ferns but next week we look at Autumn - which is how I found 'Autumn - by Amy Boothby - Aged 10' I read it today and everyone loved it. Could you tell me something about Amy, please? The children were very interested in her. Thank you.

I only read a few of your poems but I really like what I read so far. I 'recently' started writing poetry myself a few years ago and I found inspirations in your words. Thank you.
