If a boy must wonder

One of the Poems on the Underground series that I spotted on the tube recently – this time an entry to the Young Poets competition by a 17-year-old Singaporean. I love the imagery it conjures up. It may also have to do with something my mother once told me: aim for the stars, and you’ll at least reach the tree-tops.

  1. Oh! I didn’t know that the work was a Singaporean’s- I’d often admired the poem as I passed by it and love the ending 3 lines.
