Northland Poems: Kerikeri High school poems with great wintry moods!

I was so tired by the end of the week I didn’t get to post these. Visiting two groups of Year 7 students at Kerikeri High School was a wonderful experience. The sound of pencils scratching on the paper as the students got right into their poetry zones was spectacular. It deserves a poem.

A big thank you to the warm and firendly teachers and librarians. And for the delicious lunch!

Here are a few poems that struck me from this visit! Love the detail in these and the made-up words.

 

Chilly Winter

Frosty crystals forming

chilly wind howling past

bare trees moaning

this is winter.

Joshua

 

Winter Awakes

Winter awakens

beds of frost

burning flames, winds singing

chimneys smoking, windows defending

flakes falling

sleds slicing

skis gliding, snowballs flyng

eyes awidening

winter has arrived.

Max

 

Winter

Frosty grass, still

clouds like marshmallows,

cold toes.

Time to dip into some warm

slippers and start the

fire.

Kayla

 

Winter

Green trees frosting

water ice cold

fire heating house

cosy woollen blanket

 

Ice skating, driftly

white gentle clouds

seagulls resting

pumpkin soup steaming

pot ready, on stove

for ,,,

hot chocolate to warm

me up.

Lilly

    Hi Paula, It was fabulous to meet you – even though it was the end of a huge week.for you the students were completely engaged. Loved how you got them to build their vocabulary bank and the concepts of eye, ear, heart and mind. Thanks so much for coming to Kerikeri High School.
