We had the grandchildren staying with us which was fun, but ate into my writing time. I won’t complain, we had a good time, looking after children is a creative experience in its own right. I was moved to reflect on school holidays.

Easter Holidays (NaPoWriMo Day 8)

Easter Holidays
Easter Holidays, children in the sun;
The sun that drives all thoughts of school away.
Away the cares of yesterday, for fun
Is the order now. Now and all the day,
All day for two weeks they will gladly play.
Play they will, with no thought for tomorrow.
Tomorrow will come with its own sorrow,
But for today fun and play will hold sway
Until the children’s days of fun are done.
When to school they return, their parents play!
