Tanvi is an 11 year old student from Melbourne who loves to write. Here is one of her poems which is about Tanvi’s first
day in a new school.
All my things are in a box My clothes, my shoes and all my socks I get my hairbrush and brush my locks Staring into space and cuddling my toy fox
We're moving and that is that I tug my clothes and flip the rug/mat My mom comes in and gives me a pat She says I have a surprise what is that?
I get my things and go outside All the emotions come in like a tide All my friends are there for me to confide I was so happy I almost cried And I burst with pride And then I realised That I had a knot tied Deep, deep inside
A gush of sadness overcame me Realising that they would no longer be with me It was a horrible thing to see And then guilt ran free
My dad squeezed my hand I looked up and had a demand To stay here and Stay on the land
My dad said that I would make new friends Friends till the end Friendships to mend And they would always be my friend
I thought about it, lad It then seemed rad I wrote it in my notepad Maybe it won't be so bad
