Nursery Haikus  

A selection of poems inspired by children I worked with throughout my time as a Nursery Practitioner.

Circle Time

If I had one wish
I would become the person
that you see me as


Happiest outside
Stomping stars, building, making
creating your world.


Come back and see me
In your bright new uniform
and tell your stories

Pre-School Huxley  

I remember when
Our mornings always began
With tears, then stories.

Baby Huxley

Tutu in my lap,                                                                                                                                                                sequins in your pockets shine                                                                                                                                         but we shine brighter


You take my hand like
I belong to you, and for
The next term I do.


Your contagious smile
Made my darkest days brighter;
light reflected back.


I watch you make art
and remember how it feels
to see true beauty.


Strong as your namesake
excited by the world and
the people in it.


The world is waiting
for you to come and change it
like you changed mine.


The moon and stars are
waiting for you to take aim
and echo through you.


If only you knew
The power of your laughter
My little treasure.
