Thanks for the poems that move. So many different ideas and moods and rhythms. I loved reading them all. There are so many ways to make words move in poems. I have to take screen shots if your poems are set out differently in case you are wondering.
If I didn’t pick you this time do try my challenge tomorrow.
I am sending a copy of The Letter Box Cat to Scarlett.
Emily sent me an poem that I couldn’t open and couldn’t reply to. If you read this – resend!

Pickle cat chases the mouse,
Pickle cat goes round the house.
Pickle cat sleeps all day,
Pickle cat wants to play!
Pickle cat starts to growl,
Pickle cat stops and meows.
Pickle cat goes round the corner,
Pickle cat hops in the sauna!
Pickle cat goes to bed,
as he counts the sheep above his head!

My Fast Friend
My Friend Zaine
Is a brilliant runner
When the starting gun sounds
He races off like a bullet
And faster and faster
And faster and faster and faster
And faster and faster and faster and faster
Until all I can see is a blazing trail of white-hot fire

Swift as a plane
To catch his prey
Swoops a w a y
With the prey
By Caiden S
Sitting in the dark sky
watching the stars
fade and appear
and the moon
move in a circle.
They sit there
until we come.
The mushrooms move
when we are not looking.
By: William S Age: 8 years Year: 4 School: St Andrews College, Christchurch
Sitting, frozen upon the jars and tins,
A little cube of ice,
Chattering, frozen, always cold,
Between his friends in the mould.
What is happening to the poor thing?
Oh no, it’s out in the sun,
Careful, or it will melt!
Slowly changing form,
Ready to start life again.
These days it’s different,
It’s not ice,
It something else that is quite nice,
It now sits in a jug, gurgling,
It is… water!
