My Special Place

Joanna , Year 5

At the end of the wide stone path, hidden in the bushes, is a peaceful tower. Fantails tweet in our ears and the smell of pine enters our noses as we step into our bell tower and repeat the same game… tag! We chase each other around and around the tower. Sharply bladed flax whips us on the legs. After the thrilling game, we flop down on the benches and take a big breath of fresh air. The little shelter protects us from the blazing hot peeks of sun shining down through the treetops. Crickets chirp noisily all around me as I peek down onto the shimmering lake. Happiness swells up inside me and I know I am safe.
