Auchinairn Primary School: Lyn Ure


My Gran's Mum's Necklace

When her mum gave it to her
The necklace
She was so proud
She wore it
Everyday and she even
Wore it to bed

She never took
It off until
She gave it to Lynn
Lynn was not
Allowed to wear it for one year

So when Lynn put it
On and put her jumper on and
Took the necklace out

And it could see
Lynns chin, her neck and other people
It could feel
The neck so warm
It could smell
The good food
The fresh air
It could hear
Dogs barking,
People talking
Kids running

When it came to night it went back
Into the big dark box.
