Maisy Is Shy
Daisy Laginha, Grade 1, Karrinyup Primary School
There was a tiny girl called Maisy,
whose favourite flower was Daisy.
She was extremely pretty,
and had recently bought a kitty.
Although she had a nasty habit,
she was shier than a rabbit!
She never ever said hello,
and tried her best to lie low.
Maisy hid when someone came looking,
or pretended to be busy cooking.
She never raised her hand in class,
it's a wonder how she ever passed.
But Maisy was very clever,
she couldn't be shy forever.
Or no-one would know,
how special she could go!
She decided finally after a very long time,
that she would finally be strong and speak her mind.
But because no-one had heard her speak before,
they got so shocked, everyone swore!
