Kate Williams wrote her first poems for her children – anything to get them to sleep at night! But they stayed awake and suggested she sent them off to a publisher. She followed their advice and has been writing poems ever since, with around 200 published to date in books and arts magazines for children in the UK, Australia and the US. Kate also provides poetry workshop days for primary schools. Here is her website.
If we let it
As true as the blue of a field cornflower,
As surely as the glory of a great, green wood,
As stark as the bark of a midnight fox,
As clear as the dear robin’s cheep-cheep-cheep,
As true as me and you, and all we ever knew,
our world will fall away if we let it.
