Magic – James Green

Don’t want to say goodbye

Many thanks to James Green for his excellent poem about magic. We are sure it will transport you away to a mystical mysterious world, and we enjoyed reading it very much. James is a pupil at The Joseph Whitaker School with a fantastic way with words. Well done James and thank you for your support.


Looming trees,

Glistering sands,

Buzzing bees,

All in front of my hands.

Shock in my eyes,

Amazed at the sight,

Don’t want to say goodbye,

Want to stay here all night.

Taking pictures on my phone,

Colourful birds flying above my head,

This marvellous place is my home,

It’s like something I’ve read.

This place is the best,

It’s the contrast of tragic,

It allows me to rest,

It feels like magic.

By James Green – a Year 7 student at Joseph Whitaker School.
