What are some of your favourite poems? We invite you to share!
At our January assembly, we were welcomed into the new year by division 2's presentation of their Poetry Cafe! Not only did they share their wonderful words, they also invited the entire school to participate by sharing their favourites or creating their own poems and taking part in "POEM IN YOUR POCKET WEEK". I thought I'd share some of the favourites from the assembly here as well....it was difficult to choose!
Performances Are Scary! by Michelle & Lyanne
I would be lying
If I said I enjoyed performing.
I feel the anxiety build up inside me.
1000 eyes staring at me,
I start to feel my hands tremble.
I stare out at the 1000 eyes,
Performances are still scary!
Ode To The Chicken by Jafnel
I lay your roasted body over a bed of fresh potatoes.
Your sweet juices flow from your succulent flesh,
And glisten your crispy, golden skin.
You are perfection!
I ferociously rip away
Your legs from your thighs
And I take a big bite.
I repeat! Oh I repeat!
I fall into a trance!
I lose myself in your subtle yet complex flavours.
Your warm meat and well-seasoned skin
Take me to a magical place.
Your fragrance fills my nostrils,
With savory aromas of garlic and rosemary.
You make my mouth water!
Ode To Bread - by Maxwell & Johnny M
Oh bread, you’re as plain as we can see,
Delicious and fluffy you can be.
Melted butter we shall spread,
Upon your soft and fluffy head.
As a cooking ingredient you are used,
With other food you are infused.
Your deliciousness I can’t resist,
Without you I wouldn’t exist.
With many meals you can be paired,
And with many friends you can be shared.
Hold on I’ll BRB,
I just can’t resist you as a BLT.
Soon you will live in my tummy,
And taste super yummy.
But as I take a bite from your head,
I finally realize that you are … dead …
Reading is …a collaborative poem by the students in Division 2
A divine journey
To a magical
Packed with emotion.
A thought provoking
Us to be present,
To let our imaginations
And to acknowledge our dreams.
