Today’s prompt is to write a poem which explores the adage that your school days are the best days of your life.

You might like to consider:

  • Do you think that your school days are the best days of your life? Why?
  • Should you write a poem based on the premise that the adage is untrue?
  • Should you draw on your own experiences or write more generally?
  • Are there any especially vivid recollections you can draw on / adapt?
  • Do you think it’s easier being at school now or back when you were a child?
  • What is your best memory of school?
  • What was the hardest thing about being at school?
  • What would the perfect school experience have looked like?

Happy reading, happy writing -and if you do write, don’t forget to post your poem (in full or as a link) in the comments below so we can all enjoy it.
