I am posting my favourite two food poems. Anita‘s poem is very simple and simple poems can be a great way to create a strong image. I think Emily was inspired by a funny food poem of mine (see my note under her poem) and brought her own imagination to it. I am always happy for you to use my poems for inspiration!
Congratulations girls. I am sending you both a copy of my book The Letterbox Cat. I just need to order some more so you may have to wait a bit!
“Hmm, what’s for dinner, what’s for dinner?”
“Will it be gatatoe and pravy?”
“Or sicken choup”?
“Maybe even chish and fips?”
Potato and gravy,
Fish and chips.”
Emily R, 10yrs old, Yr. 6 who goes to Hobsonville Primary School. I think Emily was inspired by a poem I have in Macaroni Moon! It’s called ‘Nutty Food.’ I like the way she changed the second part and made the poem her own. Brava!
Food poems make me hungry!
