Poems by the children

Here you will find examples of:

 

A workshop poem written and based on Martin Luther's 'I Have A Dream' speech.

St Mary's  CE Slough School

A poem based on geography work about rivers, the environment and pollution.  Cookham School

Storm poem by year 5 boy based on my 'Storm' poem.

'My Gift ' poem  from Cippenham Library Poetry workshop on looking inward at themselves and discovering what they are really about.

 

The Canadian Creek

 

Down the mountains as I rush and splash

Through snowy forests of bears playing and splashing

Tumbling down falls, through valleys free to flood.

Fish playing, jumping and zipping around

 

Changes happened

Bears left, fish died, cities replaced villages

Children pollute, not play.

Trees are cut down and block the meandering path I follow

Flood plains are exterminated

Levees are built

...

 

Yr 6 Boy

 

This poem is fully of imagery and movement, as it journeys just  like the river it depicts. You can almost reach into that tumbling waterfall and dive with those children into the unpolluted river, in that tiny unspoilt village.

 

I Have a Dream.....

 

I have a dream,

But no  ordinary dream.

Where everyone can live  like one nation,

Which was how it was with our creation.

No fighting, rudeness or even brawling, 

Or we will be on our knees and crawling.

In anger...

 

Y6 Girl

 

Because she has used rhyming couplets, this poem reads rather  like a  rap or even a song,. This gives it a cadence and a structure that is still challenging in its own way. Why? Because she has endeavoured to use rhyme, but  still keep the tone serious and thoughtful.

 

Me

 

When I play my music,

Notes wriggle around.

It pleases other people..

 

Anjali Goolur aged 9 -  Slough Library My Gift Workshop

 

Using personification, Anjali has captured exactly what brings her joy and how she enhances the lives of those around her, with one of her 'gifts'. 

 

Somehing is wrong

The natural disaster.

Bringing fear and terror,

Throws everything around

Like a child with a tantrum

Leaving nothing        place

                            in

Cars thrown about like  tiny toys

 

Y5 Paul

A superb well delivered, insightful poem about a storm.
