I loved playing with sounds in the poems for my new book coming out with Scholastic in August this year (The Letterbox Cat and other poems).
I had such fun writing poems with only two words on a line. The second word would stay the same but I kept changing the first word. I kept playing with the order, the alliteration and the rhymes. Sometimes they rhymed and sometimes they didn’t.
I will save the one in the book for when that comes out!
But you could try with cat:
or you could try tree:
I have fun making patterns with the first word when I do a poem like this. It can be simple or tricky.
Use any second word you like. Try a few then pick your favourite to send me.
Give it a go. You can enter it in the first sound poem competition if you like.
