Little gold star

Miss Ryan reached into her bag

and took out a little gold star.

She stuck it on the top-right corner

my painting was the best by far.

She loved the clouds up in the sky

and all the poppies red.

"The big grey rock's wonderfully placed

right in the centre," she said.

I looked at her in puzzlement

she looked right back at me.

It's not a rock, that big grey thing

it's a tortoise you see!
