Prompt #17 “Bird Words” continued

Leave a comment

Good Morning,

Here is a great idea courtesy of James Aitchison.

Begin with a short description about a species of word and follow that with a poem. An example is posted below.

I will collect these poems if enough are send in and schedule as a series for the upcoming school holidays.

 

BIRD WORDS No. 1

 

The peewee is also known as the magpie-lark, peewit and mudlark.  It is native to Australia, Timor and Southern New Guinea.  Its black and white plumage was first described in 1801.  The peewee is the gardener’s friend because it eats pesty insects and their larvae.

 

 

A peewee in a tree

 

Old man Jack walked in his garden,

Listening to his arteries harden.

He spied a bird on a treetop

And what the bird said brought Jack to a stop:

 

Pee-wit, pee-wee, pee-wee-wee-wee,

Pee-wit, pee-wit, pee-wit-wit-wee,

Wit-wit-wee-wee, wee-wee-wit-wee,

Pee-wit, pee-wit, pee-pee-wee-wee!

Prompt #16 “Space”

Leave a comment

Good Morning,
I saw a news article the other night about the race for space travel.
I think it’s called Space Tourism.
Wouldn’t it be incredible to travel in space and see our world from above?

This weeks prompt is Space.
The poems you send in may take a while to show up as Autumn poems are still being scheduled but I will let you know as you send your writing in.

“It went zip when it moved
Bop when it stopped
Whirrr when it stood still
I never knew just what it was
And I guess I never will”

Good Morning,

Have a listen to the song in the link above.

What can you write about the marvellous toy?
