The Year 5’s created some fabulous pieces of Poetry for their Portfolios.

A poem of poems
There once was a limerick,
Who went to the zoo,
And when he was there,
he met a haiku,
The two of them went,
To the lions plain,
It was there that they met,
a mighty cinquain,
In the bog was a frog,
Who was under a curse,
But turned out to be ,
A funny free verse,
Then they found Shakespeare,
Who was making a salad,
And while they were there,
He gave them a ballad,
They went to the bat cave,
The dark was intense,
And in the light was,
A poem of nonsense,
The six travelled on,
To the city of Shloem,
Where they were all enlightened ,
That they were each poems.
Winter creeping in
Killing all life
Was my answer
When it asked me
If I’d liked it…
Said the future
Then it showed me
What the truth is:
For an instant
Of a lifetime
Yet I waste it!
The wind blew the leaves around me.
Red, yellow, orange, green, purple and brown.
Quick twirls and flutters of colour.
Everywhere, to the left, to the right.
The colours of a rainbow, so beautiful and clear.
The leaves danced on the floor.
And did summersaults in the air.
Cartwheels along the ground.
Backflips through the street.
Soft, white, sand
Blue ,crystal, clear sea
Sand castles everywhere to be seen
You can feel the hot wind against your face
Waves crashing on the rocks
The beach, such an amazing place to be
Once I was in a netball match
And we won!
Got a shot
The ball flying into the net
We won by a point
Then our team
Was priding with beam
And when I woke up
It was a dream
White foam crawling,
I am standing there breathless, staring at the sea,
Shades of orange fill the sky.
Seagulls flying overhead,
No more white foam,
Blasts of colours roam the sky.
Sand is cold,
I am a bee
As happy as I am
High in the sky
Trying to kill
The only thing they see
which is sadly me!
People waiting eagerly,
The tram approaches,
Her Majesty and the Duke.
I’m scared but excited.
Look! The Duke!!!
Why was it so short?
I wanted more.

The quiet village
The sun rises gently over the mountains,
Brightening the early world,
Birds softly sing their sweet tunes,
Waking the quiet village,
Bluebells bob their heads here and there,
Dancing to the morning chatter,
The big, strong trees merrily wake up,
From the sounds of laughing children,
The sunny, busy morning continues,
In the quiet village
Knocked over trees,
Bashed up cars,
No birds singing
No blue skies…no
Just a small,
Splash, splosh went the water high and low
Deep down lived a water troll
Deeper down lived a shark that drove a truck
A little further down lived a sea dragon
And what beast he was
He would protect his treasure from anyone.
Walking in the dark
Frightened and cold
Walking alone in the darkness
Strangers walking around you
While dogs howl at the moon
Bushes rustling, rain and thunder
The dark is the creepiest place to be
Avoiding creepy, abandoned houses and shops
Are you brave enough to face the gloomy dark?
Flew the owl,
Riding the wind,
The wind blows through his wings,
Sleep in day, awake at night,
Sharp beaks, sharp claws, but very cute,
Big eyes so he could see his prey at night,
He comes back down,
Soft and fluffy, sleeping in bed,
Good night sleepy owl.
In Summer I go out a lot
I go swimming at the pool
Or eat ice cream with my brothers
In Autumn I go to the park with my friends
Or run around with my dogs
And jump in the piles of red and yellow leaves
In winter we stay in
Because of the cold rain outside
The dogs lick our faces
Which I think is very strange
Spring we’re outside again
Having fun with friends
After that the seasons start again
Into the New Year.
The ball is bounced
The ruckman collide
A rover grabs it
And boots it up high
The backmen push and try to punch
But a player flies high and oh, what a mark
He goes back ‘cooley’
And kicks it straight over the goal umpires hat
The crowd goes crazy
The team go wild
They’ve won the game
And they’ve won in style
Bright colours in the sky
The smell of rain lingering behind
Sunshine breaks through the clouds
Everything happy comes back.
The bread is sliced
To descend to the heat
I’m waiting, I’m watching
I’m tapping my feet
The toaster goes beep
I rush and I run
I grab my plate
THE TOAST IS DONE!
By Henry Joe Nankervis
I am a rainbow fish,
I swim across the Barrier Reef,
Looking, searching, finding.
I take my prey,
Whilst others search for their prey.
The boiling, hot sun brings busy families to the beach, and there are ice-cream trucks everywhere.
Leaves falling, wind picking up and temperatures dropping
Icy rain, cold breezes, everyone unpacking their winter pyjamas
All the flowers blossoming, bringing summer back
By Sam D
The Beach (Haikus)
The waves were crashing.
And the seagulls were squawking.
While I’m watching all.
I then sat to watch.
To let every thought drift off.
While I go relax.
I then woke in shock.
Realising my mind made all.
And all was a dream.
Leaves drifting from trees
Creating a golden path
For me to walk on
Birds squawking in trees
Monkeys swinging through jungles
Tigers stalking pray
Birds whistle in trees.
Birds fly high in the blue sky.
Birds lay eggs in nests.
Cats purr comfortably
Cats jump over big fences
Cats run through alleys
Birds sleep in big trees
Birds lay eggs in spikey nests
Birds are so noisy
Oh the great black hole,
An endless vortex of death,
Nothing can survive.
The cool running water
Flowing streams, raging rapids
A need for all life
Black sky full of stars
With eight different planets
Spinning round the sun
Cold and icy
Everybody having fun
Winter has arrived
In the dark night sky
The tornado comes closer
Ripping down houses.
Big, blue waves crashing
The sea spraying with water.
Boats are capsizing.
Cute little puppies,
Bouncing high around the room,
Fun, little creatures.
The Rising Sun
Birds squawked at sun rise
The sun rises high today
At dawn the moon wakes
There once was an old man called Santa
He drank lots of Coke, Sprite and Fanta
He gave presents they say
Throughout Christmas Day
That kind, sweet old man called Santa.
The Thin Man
There was a man from Berlin,
who was really incredibly thin.
If he needed to hide,
he just turned to the side.
He was thin as a very thin pin.
There was an old lady called Rose
she had extremely long toes
she went out one night
and got quite a fright
as she tripped over the garden hose.
Th Boy from Sparta
There once was a boy from Sparta
There was Albert Einstein , but this kid was smarter
When he got old
He became very bold
and worked as a professional farter.
There once was a young boy who loved fishing
During class he would always be wishing
He was out on the bay
Catching fish everyday
That his mum every night could be dishing
There once was a woman named Jill,
Who lived on a very big hill.
One day it imploded,
So everyone exploded.
There once WAS a woman named Jill.
There once was a boy called Lee,
Who thought he was a bee,
When getting some money,
He thought it was honey,
So ate on toast with his tea,
I love the bird the pelican
His beak can hold more than his belly can
He can hold in his beak
Food for a week
Oh that bird the pelican
Playing, swinging, laughing
A bright spark as the world goes by
Cold, wet noses
Barking, digging, jumping
Eyes, they look up at you with love
Snow falling down,
Melting, changing, freezing,
Snowballs are flying, landing everywhere,
I had a cat with a very long tail,
For some odd reason why it was very frail,
We went to the vet but there was no cure,
All the vet said was that the tail’s too obscure,
So we took it back home and as we got to the door,
It suddenly let out a horrible roar,
Quickly it shrunk to the size of a mouse,
But its tail stayed the same as it ran through the house,
The tail it went crazy, it had a life of its own,
Smashed a hole in the window, broke mum’s vase and the phone,
Mum was angry, I’d never seen her so mad,
She talked for 3 hours to grandma and dad,
At the end of all that she walked into my room,
She had come to deliver the message of doom,
“that cat has to go, that cat cannot stay”,
“it’s off to uncle Jim’s farm, it’s going away”,
We sat on my bed that big tail and I,
It gave me a cuddle and I started to cry,
Later that night I woke with a start,
I heard thumping downstairs or was it my heart?
I peered around the door and what did I see?
Two robbers in the house, or perhaps there were three,
I tried to look through the door it was open a fraction,
The tail said, “don’t worry” as it jumped into action,
What happened next was a remarkable sight,
Three grown men and a tail in a fight,
In a flash it was over, the tail it had won,
And at the top of the stairs stood my dad and my mum,
They clapped and they cheered and said ‘hip hip hooray’,
We love that pet tail, that pet tail it can stay!
Now we’re all happy I think you’d agree,
My mum, dad and grandma, my pet tail and me.
