Inclusive but exclusive

Friends gather
beneath the inclusive gumtree.
I run between children as separate groups
In the midst of this,
I attempt to meet up with
as they try to grab my attention
happy birthday.


  1. Your gum tree certainly has a welcoming, inclusive nature. You've captured beautifully what it is like to be host at a party. x

  2. Hi Ruby! My name is Erica - I doubt you'll remember me, but when you were two and half years old I did a story with you for One News. Ever since, I've always wondered how you are. And I see you're now a very talented writer! So wonderful. I'd love to hear from you.
