Primary Level Commended
An emigrant’s suitcase, packed to the brim,
With all sorts of things, big and small, thick and thin,
With the leather trimmings ready to blow,
And the zip zipped up, ready to go.
With a picture of mother
And my Grandad’s old watch.
A box of fags
And a bottle of scotch.
Full of memories
From my old home.
Pictures and old momentos
Of everywhere I’ve roamed.
I’m looking forward to my new life
Across the Atlantic sea.
I’m leaving a lot of friends behind me,
Please never forget me.
