It's raining leaves (Hannah) / Poor tree ( Sophie)


Leaves
are falling
to the ground.
When they fall,
they make no sound.
A shower of colours
dripping down:
red, yellow,
green and
brown.

POOR TREE
Leaves dance
listening the wind,
they flye like a kite.
When they're tired,
they fall to the ground.
The tree looks at them
and says:

Poems are written in a different way from stories. They have verses instead of chapters and are written in lines. Sometimes, but not always, poems use rhyme and rhythm to express ideas. There are many different types of poem, for exemple:
  • List poem: a poem that list ideas on a theme.
  • Shape poem: a poem that forma a shape on the page.
  • Haiku: a japanese poem with 17 syllables.
  • Riddle: a poem with clues like a puzzle.
  • Performance poem: a poem that is actet out.
There are many others, too! For activities about writing poetry

Nuria I like the haiku a lot. I wish I could do one for you but I have got to go and do my homework.But maybe I'll do one for you soon.
