SIOBHAN’S STORY: “MATILDA” Friday, 12 February 2010

Posted by edincityoflit in Schools blog.

Siobhan carries the poem “Matilda” by Hilarie Belloc.  Siobhan writes, “I have chosen this poem because in primary school my teacher use to read it to the class. I really enjoyed it, and I still remember it well.”

from Matilda
Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,
It made one Gasp and Stretch one’s Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
Had kept a Strict Regard for Truth,
Attempted to Believe Matilda:
The effort very nearly killed her,
And would have done so, had not She
Discovered this Infirmity.

Siobhan is a pupil at South Queensferry High School.
