Some windy poems: The can flew off the rocks like a bird

Some of Sarah’s Year 3 students at Ormond School in Gisborne got inspired by the wind this week and wrote these cool poems. I like these poems as they tell little stories without using too many words. They have great images, juicy words and surprising bits. You can read them for yourself! Great job young poets!

 

The Flying Cushion

The wild wind blew as strong as can be

The wind was so strong

It blew a cushion away

It blew it…

Up, down, all around

and then…

into the next-door neighbour’s vineyard!

 

Dad runs like Superman

Jumps real high

Over the fence

Picks it up

Back to the house

Go, go, go, Dad!

Now it’s safe.

Cards

The card flew away

I was laying it on the table

It landed on a pile of old leaves

I raced over

I picked it up

It was the king of diamonds

 

by James

 

 

The Windy Night

I listened

There was a rustle

It sounded like the metal on the roof was moving

It was night

The wind was blowing loudly

 

by Beck

 

 

The Can

The can flew off the rocks like a bird

It flew into the dark sea

I raced after it

My knees got wet

I fell on the slimy rocks

I caught it and put it back Jet,

Dad and me started shooting it again

It was a Baked Beans can.
