Debra’s pukeko poem

Debra wrote this poem during my workshop at Papatoetoe Intermediate. She is in Year 8. She has some eye-catching similies.

Pukeko
Deep sea blue
Black like the night sky
Cherry lipstick red
Marching fearlessly
Tail flicking with every step
Long chocolate brown stick legs
Eyes like mini orange basketballs
Stretched out, limping, bouncy walk
Grazing, picking, poking
Pukeko
