Hi everyone, I hope you’re all well! My recent book review of The Snowman by Michael Morpurgo inspired me to share a little piece of my own writing history. I wrote this poem when I was ten years old and came across it recently in an old notebook and so since it’s winter and we’re barrelling towards Christmas, I thought I’d post it! I hope you enjoy it.


There’s a snowman in my garden
And he’s round and fat
He’s got a red and green scarf
And a black top hat

He has coal for his eyes
A carrot for a nose
He has buttons down his front
So it looks like he has clothes

He’s such a happy snowman
The happiest you could meet
And I can see him from my window
When we all sit down to eat

There’s a snowman in my garden
But he will have to leave us soon
Though he’ll be back again next winter
Unless it snows again in June!

As always, thank you so much for stopping by and spending a little bit of time with me today, it really does mean a lot!

Until next time,
