Bessie Wilson and the day it rained flowers

The day it rained flowers

was her favourite of all,

She looked up from her book

as they started to fall.

Down through the clouds

the petals floated


petal confetti

danced on the ground.

Bessie danced with them

as there was no one around.

Leaping and twisting and

spinning and hopping

she danced round the garden without even stopping.


A distant sound

brought her

out of her dreams.

The petals stopped falling,

her friends were calling.

Come on Bessie

it's time for tea!

What is your favourite day?

Do you like dancing?
