KEY STAGE

Key Stage 2

I called out to Tomorrow

To ask about her plan.

She said, “You’ll have to wait and see;

Time takes time, you understand?”

 

So, I’m sitting in this secret,

Fizzing with anticipation;

I hope the day is a sentence

With a mark of exclamation!

 

The day before a holiday

Or the date on an invitation,

I start to feel like I’m floating,

I start to feel elation.

 

Tomorrow, I do not know

Exactly what you’ll be,

But my mind and heart are racing

From the possibilities.
