The Street – by Spencer

Spencer wrote this poem at home without being asked – Mrs Thresh thought it was amazing and worth sharing.

The Street

The silence of the city street,

Only the tapping of my feet,

When a whisper arose,

Were they friends or foes,


I thought should I turn back,

Or would that show my braveness lacks,

A figure stepped forward maybe two,

Thinking with great depth what should I do,


Do I have time to run back,

Or would they then go on the attack,

I couldn’t make out their faces,

But they are in the right sort of places,


The stamping of their feet,

Was like a musical beat,

They then multiplied,

It was then that I sighed,
