In our class, Room 2 have been writing free-verse poems. We chose a topic that we wanted to write about, we could rhyme and we had to make sure we didn't add any key words. Can you guess what my poem is about?!
A WORDY FAIRY TALE
Curled up on the couch, the covers over my head in a blanket burrito.
My eyes glisten with anticipation, waiting for the sound of tyres running along the gravelly path.
My dad coming back from my sanctuary.
A place full of imagination galore.
Finally, I hear the fateful sound.
It makes my tummy jump around.
I want to leap out of my makeshift bed but comfort on the couch is too precious to give up.
I wait in glee, the excitement is definitely getting to me.
I’ve finally got the bag of treasures.
My heart pounds as I pick up the first one.
I slowly open it.
It’s almost like it weighs a tonne.
My eyes drift from word to word.
Vocabulary comes alive on the ivory sheets.
The characters envelop me.
I’m suddenly in another world, their world.
I don’t want to go back but that’s harder than it seems.
Quick break then back on.
I’ve just gotten to the good part.
The room is all quiet.
Now this is the life!!!!
REFLECTION: I like how I used harder vocabulary so that I could appeal to my audience (adults) a bit better. My next step is to make sure it makes sense and not to over pack my poem.
