Rhyming poetry

We are poets and we know it!

We have been writing rhyming couplets this week where we had to come up with lots of rhyming words, but also had to think about the pattern and number of syllables in each line.  We enjoyed writing about colours but found getting the right number of syllables quite tricky. Here is one by Allan and Harris:


I really like the colour pink

Because it always makes me blink.


And if I try to rhyme with red,

It always makes me think of bed.


I often use the colour blue,

It always makes me think of you.


My favourite is the colour orange,

The only thing that rhymes is SPORANGE!
