A poem for VE Day

By Marwa (Upper Key Stage 2)


It was 
Lancaster bombers dropping red and green flares
The peeling of bells, the whistle of tugs on the Thames

It was
Sailors climbing the lamp posts, Swinging by one arm
Policemen losing their helmets and shields 

It was
Bonfires lit, fireworks fizzing to get released, Dustbin lids clanging,
Paddling in the fountains of Trafalgar Square,
Everyone splashing and whizzing everywhere

It was
How we celebrated Victory in Europe Day in 1945
