Holiday Poem Camp: Dad snoring like thunder!

Monica has taken up her brother Isak’s challenge to shut her eyes and collect sounds and write a sound poem. She has picked out some great sounds, hunted for some fresh similes and come up with a surprising ending. Great job on this Monica! BTW: Wordsworth is a famous poet who was born in the 1700s in England. Schoolchildren for years learnt his poems by heart, including ‘The Daffodils.’ If you read the first verse of this poem you might see why Monica has put Wordsworth in her poem:

I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;

Hi Paula,

Here is my sound poem.

Thank you so much for all the opportunities you’ve given us and encouraging us to write poems!






cats purring like a motor

pages turning like leaves

Mum sighing like wind

Dad snoring like thunder

wrapper crinkling like footsteps

clouds crying of sadness

me writing this poem

like Wordsworth
