We would like to celebrate this wonderful poem created by Year 5, inspired by this beautiful picture (Peter Messer).
Leaf-man slowly and quietly glides in the dark like a bird gliding without a single sound,
Leaf-man on the ground; golden brown rug,
In the night he shivers and then strikes,
Leaf-man moves like a slithering snake; slithering across the city.
Diving leaves falling without making a sound,
golden – swirling in the breeze, breaking down into leaves.
Diving leaves in the air,
dancing in a circle,
dancing across the land,
jumping up and down in excitement.
Walking quietly, then bouncing down an alley,
Observing throughout, walking in plain sight.
Leaf man stands in a tornado of leaves,
The thief of leaves,
Laughing as you see him no more, leaving only an echo.
