Sam - almost seven

10th July 1998 at 01:00
Sam's mind

is as bright

as a kingfisher

a streak of liquid blue

diving to raid fast-flowing streams

Mathematician

Poet

Artist

Philosopher

but pencil and paper

is not Sam's scene

and tests for key stage one

have soon to be done

What will it do for his

self-esteem?
