What's in a Poem?



A busy buzzy


a happy hopping


a cheeky chatty


that’s what’s in a poem.


A scrumptious slice

of birthday cake,

an ice cream with

a chocolate flake,

a tray of biscuits

freshly baked –

that’s what’s in a poem.


A zooming car,

a chuffing train,

an empty house,

a winding lane,

a holiday

in southern Spain –

that’s what’s in a poem.


A dragon’s sneeze,

a dinosaur,

a wizard’s spell,

a monster’s claw.

All these things

and many more –

that’s what’s in a poem.
