Guest Post: The Parent Poet.

Not so long I came across a poem shared on Facebook. It was a reworking of The Tiger Who Came To Tea. You may have seen it. It was absolutely brilliant, better than the original if you ask me! The lady behind that is a new blogger on the block, The Parent Poet. I was pleased to discover we were already following each other on Twitter and immediately I became a big fan and a teensy bit jealous of her poetry skills (my own are seriously lacking). Today I have a poem for you from the talented lady herself.

About The Parent Poet: 

The Parent Poet is actually a 30-something mum hanging on to life by her fingernails, living on the coast and getting through the days by writing silly poems. 

I miss you already.
You’ve not even left.
September is waiting
To leave me bereft.

I see that you’re growing
In so many ways
And I know that you’re ready
To start the next phase.

I’m thrilled for you little one,
I’m excited for you.
There’s adventure ahead
And some challenges too.

You’ll meet them in your own
Inimitable way.
You’ll learn new things
Each and every day.

I’m so proud already
Of all that you’ve done
And I can’t wait to see
All that’s yet to come.

But forgive me if you see
A tear in my eye
It’s just I know how quickly
Summer will fly.

Before we know it
The first day of school will arrive
And we’ll both start
A brand new phase in our lives.

I love you so much
And on your first day please do
Remember I’ll always
Be thinking of you.

  1. Such a lovely poem. Not looking forward to the day I have to send my sweet Peachy to school. But for now she’s all mine. Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next time

  2. That first line – I miss you already, you’ve not even left – is just beautiful! I’m heading over now to check out some of her other poems… Thanks for introducing us and thanks for linking up, hope to see you again next time! #KCACOLS

  3. Ooh I’ll have to find her on Twitter, I’ve stopped talking in rhyme for now but when the craziness of the school runs start again, it’s bound to return! #KCACOLS

  4. Lovely poem that sums up the first day of school although I’m sure it wont be long before she’s writing another one counting down the days before school starts after a long six weeks holiday 🙂 #kcacols
