National Poetry Day

Date: 7th Oct 2015 @ 4:12pm

Thursday 8th October is National Poetry Day. I hope we can all share our favourite poems.

One of mine is ‘To Be Great, Be Entire’ by Fernando Pessoa.

To be great be entire: of what’s yours nothing

Exaggerate or exclude.

Be whole in each thing. Put all that you are

Into the least you do.

Like that on each place the whole moon

Shines, for she lives aloft.

 

It reminds me of our pledge, ‘I will strive everyday to do my best and be my best’.

Have you got a favourite to share?

 

From Ms La Porta

My favourite poem is 'She Fell into the Bathtub'.

She fell into the bathtub,
She fell into the sink,
She fell into the raspberry jam,
And came out pink!
We put her in the backyard,
And left her in the rain.
By half past suppertime.
It washed her clean again!

In 4M we enjoyed the poem 'The Day I Fell Down The Toilet' by Steve Butler. It was very funny!
I was also really impressed that my class could recite 'The Owl And The Pussycat', which they learnt when they were in Year 3.
I loved hearing different people in school read out their favourite poems.

I had a lovely morning visiting the key stage one classes sharing 'The Daffodils' by William Wordsworth. It was a big treat to read, act out (with the children!) and discuss this lovely poem. Lots of us had visited the Lake District which had been Wordsworth's inspiration.

My favourite poem is called "An Accident "
As I was going out one day
My head fell off and rolled away,
But when I saw that it was gone,
I picked it up and put it on.

And when I got into the street
A fellow cried "Look at your feet!"
I looked at them and sadly said
"I've left them both asleep in bed!"

The Witch's brew by Wes Magee

Into my pot there now must go
Leg of a lamb and green frog's toe,
Old man 's socks and dirty jeans,
Hubble bubble at the double
Cooking pot stir up some trouble
One dead fly and a wild wasp's sting,
The eye of a sheep and the heart of a king.
A stolen jewel and mouldy salt,
And for good flavour a jar of malt.
Hubble bubble at the double
Cooking pot stir up some trouble.
Screams and howls from a haunted house
And don't forget the pint of blood
Or the sardine tin and the clod of mud
Hubble bubble at the double
Cooking pot stir up some TROUBLE!!!

My cat's name is Bod,
He's really very fat.
His stomach's on the floor,
And he can't get through his flap.

He eats and eats and eats,
He just never seems to stop.
And when we fill his bowl
Not one morsel does he drop!

His fur is very black
With white bits on his face.
But he spends most the time
Curled up in his favourite place

He never runs around,
Or sneak or pounce or jump.
My big fat cat called Bod
Really is a lazy lump!

On the floor he lies tiny teddy
Half a paw has gone already
He is tattered, torn and lame
Yet I love him just the same.

my favourite poem is called Green eggs and ham by Doctor Seuss.

it's a very funny and fun for young and older people to read it's also a very good poem because it's go all the key features of a poem to make it a amazing poem.

Doctor Seuss writes lots of good poem, stories and one of his books has been made into a cartoon film.

Wee willy winke I don't know who made it

Wee willy winke runs though the town,
Upstairs and downstairs in his nightgown,
Knocking on the windows and crying though the locks,
Are all the children in bed it's past 8 o'clock!

The purple cow.

I never saw a purple cow,
I never hope to see one;
But I can tell you, anyhow,
I'd rather see than be one.
