Jack had a go at writing some poems about poetry when I asked him to send in something for my new book The Letter Box Cat. Sometimes I like to do this too! Jack is in Year 6, aged 9 and goes to Fendalton Open Air School in Christchurch.
So …. why don’t you have a go at writing a poem that is about poems or poetry .. reading or writing them!
I might have another go too! I wrote one to go in the front of A Treasury of New Zealand Poetry for Children so you can see that in October!
Here is one of Jack‘s poems:
The Finish Line.
