Poem of the Day

Following Directions


Up, down

round and round;

north, south

homeward bound.


Left, right

make a turn;

front, back

tyres burn.


In, out

read the map;

east, west

wear a cap.


Under, over

climb all day;

keep up or we’ll

lose our way.


Follow the leader,

complete the task;

if we get lost

we can always ASK!
