Freedom Poem for National Poetry Day by Carole Bromley

Golden Time

 

 

I might do a painting, I might read a book,

I might write a poem, I might learn to cook.

 

I might do some tracing, I might act a play,

I might make a pot with some modelling clay.

 

I might build some Lego, I might sing a song.

I might do some sums, I might get them wrong.

 

I might get the guinea pig out of his cage,

I might get dressed up and dance on the stage.

 

I might make a spaceship and fly up to Mars,

I might switch the lights out and study the stars.

 

I might make a potion, I might cast a spell

I might make a prince from a frog in a well.

 

I might explore Africa, might cross the Pole,

might play for England, might score a goal.

 

I might fly a jet plane, might walk on the moon,

I can do what I want for a whole afternoon.

 

I might be a Viking, I might be from Rome.

I would rule the world but it’s time to go home.
