Riddle Poems

Last week in teams we were looking at the poem Bluebottle by Judith Nicholls. We ended up by writing our own.

Who dives and thrives,
Who is always is wanting to chill,
When scared, there invisible because they stop and stay still,
They can go slow or full speed ahead,
Some people like to keep them as pets next to the bed,
People like to eat them, have them dead on a dish,
But they are just so beautiful, water dwelling fish,

Who races and chases, 🏁
Dashes through the water, πŸ’¦
A shine in his teeth, 🦷
And detail on his gills,🐟
Now swims in the ocean,🌊
Now gone with a trace, πŸ›£
A large fish, 🐟
Who moves like the light,πŸ’‘
Bound for the sea bed, πŸ›
Who’s lightning, wind, 🌩
Always chomping fish,🐟
Ocean chopper, fishes terror.

Who licks and lies,
Who leaps and fetch,
A deep growl,
Now barks in the bright,
Who eats grass,
But will never fight,
A dog

Who dives and dives,
splashes and crashes,
chomps and bites,
attaches and devours,
up and down,
round and round,
thrives and dives,
like a pouncing lion under water,
fish are a dish for the Megalodon.

Who goes round and round,
up and down,
jumps, pounces?
Jaguars jumping about,
don’t go near of he might pounce
up and down,
round and round,
even if they do that they leave no trail.
