Week Two:   A Smile by Jez Alborough

 

Smiling is infectious

You catch it like the flu.

When someone smiled at me today

I started smiling too.

 

I passed around the corner

And someone saw my grin.

When he smiled, I realised

I’d passed it on to him.

 

I thought about my smile and then

I realised its worth.

A single smile like mine could travel

Right around the earth.

 

If you feel a smile begin

Don’t leave it undetected.

Let’s start an epidemic quick

And get the world infected.

Week One : Mirror Friends  by Jamila Gavin

 

When we look in the mirror,

Me and my friend,

I am brown and she is white.

When we look in the mirror,

Me and my friend,

My hair is dark and hers is light.

 

And my eyes are black as a raven’s wing,

And hers are as blue as a sapphire ring.

She likes chips

And I like rice,

She likes ketchup

And I like spice.

 

But when we look in the mirror,

Me and my friend

We feel we are the same as same can be,

Though I am brown and she is white,

We could be sisters,

She and me.
