Thanks for words that celebrate my success

and words my mum uses to ask me to clean up the mess.

Thank you for words so I can annoy my brothers

and thanks for the words so I can argue with my mother.

Thanks for the words so I can say sorry.

Thanks for the words that are as big as a LORRY.

Thanks for the words I use to greet

and the words I seem to meet.

Thanks for the words that are so smart

and words that just tear me apart.

Thank you for the words that I am trying to rhyme

and the words that are just wasting my time.

Thanks for words so I can chat with friends

because then I can tell them this is

the END!

The theme for National Poetry Day 2010 was HOME. Here are some wordles on the theme of HOME created by S1 pupils.

 

 

The Weather Man

I look outside my front door
I wonder if it will be cloudy any more.
But no! It’s still cloudy and grey.
It’s always like this. Every day.
Then I look up and say,
“Please! No more!”

I want sun!sun1
I want it now!

Then it comes, the big golden sun
And with it the flies with their endless hum.
The sun develops a twisted knack
Of burning me right down my back!
Then I look up and call,
“Please! No more!”

I want rain!RAIN
I want it now!

Then it comes, the torrential floods
And drowns the flowers to the buds.
Because of the rain, I can’t go to the shop.
Now I really want it to stop!
Then I look up and shout,
“Please! No more!”

I want snow!
I want it now!

Then it comes, the cotton-like flakesSNOW
And smothers everything in its wake.
I cannot leave, I am snowed in
And the cold passes right through my skin!
Then I look  up and yell,
“Please! No more!”

I want clouds!
I want them now!

Then it goes back to cloudy grey
And it will probably be like this every day,
Never sunny but usually dry
And not so cold that I could die!
Then I look up and say,
“Thank Goodness!”
