To mark the summer holidays and the fact that my little boy starts big school in September I am re-posting a version of a poem I first shared last year…

Beautiful Chaos

“Don’t put my book down the toilet”

“I won’t Daddy”

FLUSH

“Your cereal bowl is not a drum, or a steering wheel”

“Please don’t hit your sister with your Bob the Builder Hammer”

THWACK

And so the day begins

We grapple and fight

Against the oncoming day

Why

Do we stress and toil

Instead of letting children play

Be yourself

Little ones

Soon to start school

Those endless days are gone

Lovely tiny faces

And imaginative brains

Just ignore adult chores

Go out and play

Sunshine

Dragons

Lego

And beautiful chaos

I promise to down tools

And join you for a day

“Stop it, stop it”

“No the cat is not a cushion”

MIAOWAAWWWW

It’s a perfect day

  1. “Sunshine, Dragons, Lego” could be the title for my little brother’s life. What a wonderfully evocative piece. Good luck with all the chaos that a new school year brings 🙂 and thank you for the timely re-post.
