Just a little poetry

Following a Language module input surrounding poetry, I took quite an interest of how poetry is devised, the messages poetry can portray and the overall structure and genre of a poem.


 

This is a continuation of a poem by Anna Robb – what you read here is my created addition. We were set the task of reading Anna Robb’s poem and doing a continuation.

For a rumbling tummy, 
I would scoff

The snap of a biscuit
The crunch of a crisp
The slice of a sandwich
The sizzle of some chips

Food, glorious food!

 


Following this activity, we were then set the task of devising our own poems around a topic of our choice. This was completed as a group activity (Natalie Cant, Rebecca Dickson, Ben Neighbours).

 

A Pizza Poem

Thin crust
Stuffed crust
Cheesy twisted garlic crust
Gluten free is a crispy crust
But it is a must!

Swirl on tomato sauce
Garlic butter too
Sprinkle on some mozzarella
But no other cheese, ew!

Chicken, ham, pepperoni
Sounds so devine
Do not forget some roasted peppers
That’s my pizza design! 


 

The following poem is a poem written by myself. Any comments would be appreciated.
Understand it as you wish.

Teacher, teacher
Come to me
I need some help writing the letter ‘e’!
Teacher, teacher
Come to me

Teacher, teacher
Help me
She’s not being very nice to me!
Teacher, teacher
Help me

Teacher, teacher
Listen to me
I have some exciting news, you see! 
Teacher, teacher
Listen to me 

Teacher, teacher
Look at me
What do you notice different today, something about me?
Teacher, teacher
Look at me

Teacher, teacher
Talk to me
I need just one person to talk to me!
Teacher, teacher
Talk to me 

Teacher, teacher
Watch me
I need someone to just watch me!
Teacher, teacher
Watch me

Teacher, teacher
Praise me
I only hear bad things at home, you see
Teacher, teacher
Praise me

Teacher, teacher
I see him
He does not need any help, nor him!

Teacher, teacher
I listen to her 
She’s the one that’s not nice, that girl! 

Teacher, teacher
He’s had a turn
I haven’t had a chance, not even one!

Teacher, teacher
Pay attention to me!

Teacher, do you see me?
