Three sisters

Comment by: Irene Roberts on 30th December 2020 at 10:42

They remind me of the fairy stories I had as a child and the first poem I learned at school in the Infants...."Someone came a-knocking at my wee, small door"....I can still recite it! xx

When walking in Sandringham woods in the summer, we came across something like this pic, a little door at the bottom of a tree & 2 small windows higher up,. We wondered who had walked deep into the woods to do that, it made us smile.
You have got me going Irene, with those few words of that poem....I have it somewhere in my mind but refresh my memory....please ?

I had a door on my old oak tree thats in the front garden, and a few tears ago I made a small envelope about 2"X 3" put a stamp on it and addressed it to the Old Oak Tree in between No? and No? and the postcode and put it in the mail box, a few days later the postman came and opened the little door to put the envelope inside

Let imagination wander,
not bought in a shop!
Let something be possible,
even if it is not.
Let children believe ,
no matter how far they go,
For soon they will adults,
and set in the mould they know..
Tell them it's possible,
for how are we to know,
for as long as there is a might be,
then the seeds of the mind can grow..

m, you must have joined the Wigan group of inspired poets. That verse you posted is truly beautiful, thank you.
