The Shy Little Girl

The shy little girl
Who cried and cried
And wouldn’t leave my side,
Didn’t like playgroup
Or starting school,
Held pencils tight like a tool
To attack the page,
Tongue sticking out
In concentration –
Today,
This girl had a graduation!
Now a fully fledged teacher
With a staffroom mug,
A playground coat
And a bulging bag!
We are so proud
To shout out loud
CONGRATULATIONS
To Bethany-Ellen,
To your Dad and me
You’ll always be
Our shy little girl
With the pretty curls.
