Story Poems for Children

By Josie Whitehead



By Josie Whitehead

High Flyers

John’s scooter carries him to school

     Whilst Fred goes on his bike.

A friend and I both walk to school.

     It’s something that we like.


Some children come to school in cars,

     Some travel on the train –

But we mustn’t dare be late, you know.

     Our teacher would complain.


The children in the next village

     Arrive in the school bus,

BUT sometimes there’s a special treat

       Enjoyed by all of us.


John Smith’s dad pilots aeroplanes,

     And when he’s not in Spain,

He volunteers to take us all

     To school in his own plane.

* The real meaning of 'high flyer':  someone who has a lot of ability and a strong wish to be successful and is therefore expected to achieve a lot.
