This week it is been raining and snowing in Aotearoa.
It has been cold.
It feels like a Cat-in-the-Hat moment when we stuck inside and we have to INVENT INSIDE things to get warm and not be bored.
Writing poems might get me warm and I am never bored. I especially love writing rain poems!
Here is my ‘When I am cold’ poem from The Letterbox Cat
