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;
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
