Description

In this 20-line poem, C. Day Lewis, the former Poet Laureate, reflects on the moment his son first outgrew the need to be by his father's side. As Lewis beautifully describes, it is a painful process, but a natural and necessary one.

This lesson plan looks at Lewis' language and imagery, and ends with a free writing task.

'Walking Away' by C. Day Lewis is one of 15 poems in AQA's 'Love and Relationships' cluster in the latest GCSE English literature specification. Our lesson plan helps students become intimately familiar with the poem, its meaning and context.
