The wonderful poet Glenn Colquhoun had fun making up a nursery rhyme. You can listen to it here.
So I thought it would be fun to write poems that play with nursery rhymes.
They can be long or short.
They can rhyme or not rhyme.
They can use the nursery rhyme we know and love but with different words.
They can take a nursery-rhyme character and invent a new story.
They might change the beginning or the ending.
They can make the nursery rhyme take place in New Zealand.
They be funny or surprising or have a hidden message.
You might be in it! Or someone you know.
You might do a nursery-rhyme mash up. More than one in the mix!
