What's in a Poem?

 

 

A busy buzzy

bumblebee,

a happy hopping

wallaby,

a cheeky chatty

chimpanzee 

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.
