I have to admit that when Gordon mentioned that poem i did wonder what the hell he was on about, but when i go and take look-see for myself it is my poem!! Written in year 6 - when i was 10, posted by my teacher at the time Mrs Davey. I cannot believe i never knew that it was online. Anyway here it is:

"Composed standing over the blue mountain"

This place now doth like a garment wear,
I look from this point, these Blue Mountains.
This is a calm, serene place
All is quiet and clear, the other islands are visible.
This beautiful place.
Opens unto sea, rocks and the town.
Ne'er did the sun more beautifully sleep over this point.
Morning is breaking but still all is soundless,
Except for the distant horn of a huge ferry.
Ne'er saw I, never felt, a calm so gentle,
The sea swishes at its own sweet will.

Keep Living x x x

That's exactly what I thought when I read it!! this is such a mature poem with an astounding depth to it that I would have thought impossible from any ten year old!!

"And the crowd screams for more!!"
